Pinterest recipe: Cilantro Dipping Sauce

These things were SO awesome. I did a little semi-homemade kind of deal with them because I was strapped for time, but regardless – this recipe is awesome.

I bought turkey meatballs in the freezer section of Trader Joe’s and just used those. They were a little bit on the larger side once they were cooked so I just cut them in half and stuck wooden skewers that one would normally soak and use as kebab sticks.

But the star of this little appetizer that I made for my boyfriend and my Easter dinner was the cilantro dipping sauce.

  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeds removed, leave them in if you want it spicy
  • 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 scallion
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Dez said that the sauce tasted exactly like the dipping sauce he used to serve when he worked at a lovely Mexican restaurant in Nashville. He said they served it cold, but I actually liked it a little warmed up.

Try it out! And definitely let me know what you think.

I found this recipe off of Pinterest and I am an absolute Pinterest addict. Just another recipe to check off of my “Nom Nom” pin board! I can’t wait to make all of the recipes that I pin!
