This avocado sauce recipe is creamy and zingy: and magically stays green for days! Use it as a dip or on tacos, bowl meals and more.


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice (1 large lime)
  • 2 handfuls fresh cilantro, leaves and tender stems
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. Cut the avocado in half, pit it, and scoop both halves into a food processor (or small blender).
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Store in a covered jar for up to 5 days refrigerated: it stays green without special storage instructions (unlike guacamole).
