Ingredients

  • 1 cup mayonaise
  • 1/4 cup cilantro

  • 3 tablespoons almond milk
  • lime juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Notes

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.
