It is easy to make and requires minimal ingredients such as scallions, garlic, parsley, bell peppers, and a hot pepper for a spicy kick. A spoonful of this rich mixture can elevate any dish, be it meat, poultry, seafood, or vegetables, with a vibrant and uniquely Haitian taste.

1 onion, chopped

1 bell pepper, chopped

4 cloves of garlic

1 bunch of scallions (green onions), chopped
