Fresh cilantro yogurt sauce
A refreshing and light cilantro yogurt sauce with fresh garlic and lemon juice. This magical sauce is so versatile and works great on salads, tacos, grilled meats, veggies and so on!
It’s also super easy to make – within 5 minutes you’ve prepared yourself a delicious and easy homemade cilantro yogurt dressing / sauce!
We’ve got an overabundance of fresh cilantro growing in our garden, so I decided to try out some new recipes with cilantro as the ”star of the dish”. I was blown away by how delicious this sauce tasted with my cripsy rice patties! It also pairs amazingly well with Russian (chicken) shashlik we tend to cook on the weekends, yum!
The sauce is made with basic ingredients, which is great! Please feel free to play around with the amounts, and just keep tasting until you’ve got the perfect sauce.
- 5 tbsp (200 ml) greek yoghurt
- 4 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 small bunch (40 gr) fresh cilantro, washed and roughly chopped including stems
- 1 big garlic clove, roughly chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.*
- Serve & enjoy.
*I prefer to let the cilantro sauce rest for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to meld.
