This cilantro lime sauce is so good and will elevate any plain dish you have. The best part is it only takes 5 minutes to make! It also has just the right amount of tang and heat. Here I added it on top of sautéed zucchini, quinoa, and shredded chicken. Making a healthy meal even more enjoyable. You can put it on tacos 🌮, steak 🥩, salad 🥗, potatoes 🥔, burrito 🌯 bowls, or use it to dip veggies in, the possibilities are endless 🤩.
3/4 cup cilantro
1/2 cup greek yogurt or mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon peeled ginger
1 jalapeno or serrano pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 garlic cloves (2 tbsps minced)
juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 avocado 🥑 (optional)
Mix everything together in a food processor until smooth. Do not over blend to try to keep chunks of the cilantro intact.
If you prefer your sauce/dressing thinner you can gradually add water until it reaches the right consistency.
The sauce will stay good in the fridge for up to a week.
