Not kidding one bit.

One of my all-time favorite condiments/sauces/dressing/dips is Pinch of Yum’s 5-Minute Magic Green Sauce. I’ve literally made it more times than I can count and it is good on EV.ER.Y.THING…. including right off the spoon.

And it is Whole30-approved! but not AIP-approved. So I made a few tweaks, removed a few ingredients, and added my own spin… so here it is!

Let’s chat about the ingredients that makes this cilantro lime sauce so dang good.

Avocados: duh. These gorgeous fruits are the star of the show and give this sauce it’s creaminess. 

Cilantro: Hi, have we met?! As you know, cilantro is my favorite herb and I firmly believe that everything tastes better with it in the mix.

Lime Juice: The juice adds some good acidity to the sauce to balance out the fat in the avocado and olive oil.

Spices: Because we don’t want a plain, boring avocado!
