This healthy cilantro lime sauce was born after I made these Chili Chicken Meatballs. I was taking the photos and just thinking not only did they look a little blah, but they were SPICY and needed something to cool them down.
Tyler recommended making a yogurt sauce.. and I had an abundance of cilantro so I decided to combine the two.
We dipped the spicy meatballs in it, but then quickly moved on to dipping veggies in it, using it on our tacos + even as a salad dressing! It totally transformed my meals!
What can you put this Healthy Cilantro Lime Sauce on?
You can put this sauce on pretty much anything, but here are some of my favorite ways to use it:
- Whole30 Chicken Fajitas
- As a dip with chopped carrots and celery.
- As a dressing – I use it on taco salads all the time.
- Anything spicy! The combo of cilantro, lime + yogurt is great for cooling down spicy food.
- Being that it’s made from great yogurt, it has a good amount of protein so it’s perfect for snacking on our using as a condiment for basically any recipe you could think of!
I love simple sauces like this because it’s just proof that you don’t need super fatty/high calorie foods for dipping. Lighter greek yogurt + fresh herbs are all you need for a yummy, healthy sauce!
