HRM Recipe: Cilantro Lime Sauce

The HRM kitchen is at it again.  This time with a refreshing and zesty Cilantro Lime Sauce.   It’s a great side or sauce for your vegetables or grilled meats this summer. Whip up a bunch and use it as a salad dressing or add an avocado or low fat greek yogurt to make it thicker and use as a dip.


  • 1-2 limes, cut in half
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 5 teaspoons olive oil or infused olive oil


  • Avocado or Greek yogurt


  • Blender or food processor
  • Fork
  • Bowl or container for finished sauce

Gather ingredients and add cilantro and 5 teaspoons of olive oil to blender or processor.  Squeeze lime juice (see video for a helpful tip using a fork) into the blender on top of the cilantro and oil.  Chop or process until smooth.

For a thicker sauce, dressing or dip add an avocado (peeled and the pit removed) or low fat Greek yogurt to the sauce. Process again until smooth.
