Cilantro lovers, rejoice! Here’s a quick and versatile recipe that you will make again and again as you find new uses for it. Flavorful cilantro really shines in a base of avocado and plain yogurt. Jalapeño and a little apple cider vinegar give it a zesty kick. Salt and garlic round it out to create an addicting little sauce that will become a family favorite.

Here’s how it comes together:

Using a high-speed blender such as a Vitamix or Blendtec (here’s what I use) or a food processor, add all the ingredients except for the olive oil. Blend (or pulse) until smooth. Add the olive oil and blend again. If you would like more of a sauce consistency, add a little more olive oil. If you like it thick like a dip, leave as is.

We like to use this as a sauce for salmon and chicken. We love it as a dip for fries or crackers or chips! It will keep in the fridge for a few days, tightly covered, if you have any leftovers. Blend some up today!
