Cilantro Lime Sauce

I originally made this sauce to serve with Baja Fish Tacos but now I serve it with everything! Seriously: On salads, as a dip with raw veggies, on fajitas, over grilled fish, and with shrimp for dipping.

When there’s some left over on my plate, I mix it in with whatever else needs a companion, like rice or beans or corn or potatoes, or just mop it up with a tortilla. Now you see why I make three cups at a time?  Even if you’re not quite as obsessed as I am, not to worry:  It keeps well in the fridge for several days. Enjoy!

I made this for fish tacos. It was so good that my family ended up using it has a dip for crackers and veggies. The next time I made extra so it would last more then just one day. Thank you so much for sharing such a yummy recipe.” – Karina

Rarely leave comments on recipe pages but this recipe is fantastic. Made this for fish tacos on my Mother’s birthday everyone loved it. I’m also a cook at a retreat center and used it today for chicken quesadillas. People flipped out and a few had to know what was in them!” – Gerimaya
