Q. What's the secret ingredient used in some Greek red sauces?
A. Sounds like a trick question to us. But we’ll bite.
We’ve seen lots of recipes for Saltsa Domates Tomato Sauce in the past few days, with lots of variations among them. But in addition to the tomato, onion, olive oil, salt, and pepper that they all include, some also include celery, carrot, red wine, red pepper flakes, bay leaf, basil and ground cloves and cinnamon. Considering the number of recipes that include cinnamon, we’re guessing that’s the mystery ingredient.
How’d we do?
