The perfect sauce to dip and drizzle with. The recipe is also super easy to make with very little ingredients. All you need is sour cream, lime, cilantro, and salt. It is a pretty simple recipe you really just mix everything together. Let’s get started.

Start off with a cup of sour cream.

You need two limes and a handful of cilantro. Probably around 1/4 of the bushel in the picture above.

Add the lime zest and then the lime juice of two limes.

Finely chop cilantro and add. Add a dash of salt.

Done, that’s it. You can totally make it a milkier consistency by adding, even more, lime and cilantro. 

I liked this consistency for dipping. It was perfect!

A simple sauce to make to amplify a simple dish. A plain taco immediately gets played up from a sauce like this. Super easy, full of flavor, I definitely recommend. Thank you so much for catching the wave this week! Be sure you are subscribed down below so you never miss a blog post.
