This Earth Day I wanted to bring you a GREEN sauce recipe that you could put on everything.

And I mean everything. From tacos to sweet potatoes to eggs, this easy Whole30 green sauce recipe is sure to bring loads of flavor to any dish of yours.

From the fresh cilantro, spicy jalapeño and the zip of the lime, you’ll be addicted in no time.

Metaphorically I thought creating a green sauce that could be drizzled over top of just about everything would be symbolic of spreading the idea of “green” for Earth Day.

How about that? Maybe it’s a stretch but so be it.

What is Whole30 Green Sauce made of? 

This delicious creamy paleo green sauce is made with only a few simple ingredients. 

  • Mayo
  • Cilantro 
  • Jalapenos 
  • Lime 
  • Garlic 
  • Almond Milk 

What can I serve Green Sauce with? 

This Whole30 Magic Green Sauce recipe is so adaptable, quick, extremely yummy, and guaranteed the best thing you’ll make this week.

When I said you could add this green magic sauce to anything, I wasn’t kidding.

This sauce is perfect on any savory dish. You could add it over top of my Paleo Chicken Enchiladas, salmon, or even my Carnitas Frittata, the choice is yours.

 I also use it as a creamy whole30 salad dressing, a herb sauce, sandwich spread, dip for veggies, marinade for chicken breast –> you name it.

A word on the almond milk used in this Green Sauce recipe: 

The New Barn Organic Almondmilk I use IS synonymous with Earth Day.

Not only is their almond milk organic which means it’s better for us and the bees, but their bottles are BPA free and recyclable.

Or if you’re my kids and your family ends up with enough bottles, you can use them as bowling pins for some family-fun hallway bowling. True story.

One of the reasons I love supporting New Barn Organic Almondmilk is because of their environmentally conscious efforts in creating and making their product.

In fact, I’ve taken this quote from their website to share with you:

“With every product we make, our goal is the same: to create food that is real and good for your whole family. This means being transparent with our ingredients and sourcing decisions and truly valuing the people, animals, and environments involved in creating our products.

That’s why we call it New Barn. It’s our take on making food for today’s busy families, with a deeper set of values and a commitment to where we started. Something we would be proud to serve in our own kitchen.”

See what I mean? It’s easy to support a company with that vision. Beyond New Barn’s environmentally conscious attitude, their product tastes amazing.

It tastes just like almond milk you’d make at home. But so much easier because they’ve done all the work for you.

Tips for making the best green sauce at home: 

  • I  suggest that you try my 30-Second Mayo as the base. Not only is it Whole30 compliant but it’s so easy. In fact, it’s actually fun to make. I use an immersion blender and let science to the rest. And yes, it really takes 30 seconds to make.
  • Use fresh jalapenos for this green sauce recipe. Canned ones work too but they will add a pickle taste to the sauce and will also make it taste a bit more acidic.
  • You can make the sauce days before serving it and store it in the fridge covered with cling film.

Variations on this Whole30 Green Sauce recipe: 

  • You could thin the sauce out with a tad bit more almond milk and turn it into a flavorful green goddess dressing.
  • If you don’t like cilantro, use other herbs like parsley, dill and basil. 
  • For a kid-friendly version, leave out the jalapenos.

FAQ: 

Can I freeze Whole30 Magic Green Sauce? 

Sauces and dips with mayonnaise are better left in the fridge.

Although they’re safe to eat after thawing, freezing will make the ingredients separate.

The eggs, oil, and vinegar in the mayo might separate, leaving a layer of liquid on top of the sauce.
