Tangy Avocado Sauce

Concocting luscious dips with Greek yogurt is one of my favorite cooking pastimes – almost it’s own little mini-cooking project for me. This recipe gets me excited because it has avocados (one of my favorite foods) and it goes great with pretty much any Mexican meal – which made it a huge hit with my family! Another special feature to this sauce? Once you’ve enjoyed it for dinner, it morphs into a dip – just add another scoop of Greek yogurt to thicken it up a bit.

Serves: 1 1/2 cups
Love the flexibility of this sauce – you can decide how spicy you want it by using a ripe avocado or any type of guacamole dip. Happy cooking!
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro
  • 1/2 cup Canola oil
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt, whole milk
  • 1/4 cup Sour cream
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 of a Ripe Avocado OR 1/2 -3/4 cup Guacamole
  • Salt to taste (I find if you use guacamole you won’t need salt, using a fresh avocado you might want to add 1/2 tsp Kosher salt)
  1. In a food processor pulse cilantro and canola oil – it will have a paste consistency.
  2. Add the Greek yogurt, sour cream, lime juice, avocado or guacamole and salt (if using), pulse until smooth.
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 day before using.
