Cilantro Lime Sauce is a creamy, tangy, fresh, and bright sauce. Drizzle it on grilled chicken, pork, or steak. It’s also a great sauce for grilled vegetables.
the best sauce I’ve ever made
When I tell you this is the BEST SAUCE I’ve ever made – I really mean it’s the BEST SAUCE I’ve ever made! It’s so good, I could seriously eat it with a spoon…and in fact, I actually might have done that.
It has a bright, fresh flavor and gets its creaminess from mayonnaise and it’s tanginess from plain Greek yogurt. And it’s so easy to make. I just threw all of the ingredients into my blender and poof – an amazingly delicious sauce.
I served it over marinaded and grilled pork tenderloin skewers, grilled chicken, steak and even vegetables.
krazy kitchen mom tips
- In the recipe, I note that you can use the cilantro leaves and the stems. By stems I mean the small ones. I would not recommend using the thicker stalks of the cilantro.
- Do not use a food processor for this recipe (I know from experience). You need to use a blender so that the cilantro is chopped very fine.
- I highly recommend making this at least a day in advance so that the flavors have time to really come together. You can store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container or jar for four days.
