At Riko I know the green sauce is called aji verde but what is the white sauce called?

At Souk el Shater in Sunnyside I have the opposite. The white sauce is called toum but what is the green sauce called?

If it's spicy, probably jalapeƱo, parsley, and olive oil hot sauce

That's what I thought at first but zhoug looks much darker in color.

Salsa/Mojo de ajo

At Souk el Shater in Sunnyside I have the opposite. The white sauce is called toum but what is the green sauce called?

I would also guess zhoug or a green harissa.
