Dairy and Gluten Free Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce

Making creamy sauces while following a dairy and gluten free diet can seem daunting at first.  However, this dairy and gluten free creamy cilantro lime sauce could not be simpler to make.  It is delicious topping my White Beans with Chorizo or as a spread on sandwiches.  Use it anywhere you need to add a bit of richness and a bold cilantro lime flavor.

Dairy and Gluten Free Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce

3 tbs fresh cilantro, finely chopped
zest of a small lime
juice of a small lime
1 clove garlic, grated
1/4 c mayonnaise or 2 tbs mayonnaise plus 2 tbs dairy free sour cream
salt and pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper

Stir everything together.
Chill in refrigerator at least an hour to allow the flavors to marry.


  1. ooooh, this looks YUMMY! I like cilantro.

  2. Soounds fabulous Stephanie! Happy to see you have conquered the gluten free diet.

  3. Hmmm, I'm thinking there's so many things to try this with. Great post.

  4. White sauces are so difficult to make without dairy. This sounds like a great topping.

  5. I made chicken salad with this and it was great! Thanks for this great recipe.

  6. Also try it with veganaise(vegan mayonnaise ) and a splash of apple cider vinegar instead of the regular Mayo and sour cream. My favorite dressing! Nice and creamy which I miss a lot with non dairy.
