This is probably my most made sauce/dressing! Especially in the warmer months. It is so refreshing and bright! And there is no oil at all! It takes only a few ingredients too (and ones I usually have on hand!) This sauce is so good on so many things. I will include the recipes here on the site that use the dressing too.
You can use it as a sauce over proteins like chicken or steak, even salmon would be great! Or as a salad dressing. It is really so versatile! I typically remove all the seeds in my jalapenos so the dressing isn’t too spicy, but I leave in some of the ribs so it has a little spice. You can remove both, or keep both in! Just depends on your spice level preference.
I typically make this in my mini food processor, but you could make a bigger batch in a blender too! This would be great to keep on hand in the fridge (I have some in my fridge right now!).
You will need the following:
- Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
- Limes (or lime juice)
It’s that easy! Comes together in minutes.
Here are the recipes that I have on my site that include this sauce/dressing:
