Cilantro Lime Sauce
Whenever I get street tacos they always come with some sort of delicious, creamy green or white sauce that ties those tacos together. But what is it? What is this mystery sauce? And how come every time you try to duplicate it you end up with something that looks like it came out of a Gerber, baby food jar?
Typically this is because when you try to emulsify things doing it too quickly or adding too much of one thing can cause the different components to separate, and no amount of blending will ever bind them back together. But instead of giving you an earful on the chemistry of emulsification, today I’m sharing a pretty fail-proof sauce.
We’re using a yogurt base which is so thick and fatty already its gonna hold together really nicely. Just don’t blend the yogurt or it will turn to a watery consistency and you will be very sad. But since I already made that mistake and told you about it, you are now saved. 😉
This sauce is super simple, tangy, creamy and lightened up because we’re just using greek yogurt and vegetables! The perfect guilt-free addition to your meats or veggies.
