I prefer making my own sauces whenever possible:

Many store bought sauces and dressings are filled with preservatives and ingredients I can’t even prononce. By making my own, I know exactly what ingredients I am using. I know life is busy and we can’t always make our own dressings which is why I live by everything in moderation and do my best to eat clean whenever I can. If you make this dressing ahead of time, store in an airtight container or mason jar and keep in refrigerator all week long. It takes more time and a little preparation and planning, but my body thanks me for it!

How to Make Cilantro Lime Cream Sauce:

For this recipe, simply dice a green onion and 1/2 jalapeño pepper, add to food processor with 1/4 cup olive oil, juice of 1 lime, bunch of cilantro, 1/4 tsp salt, dash of pepper and blend. Then add 1/2 cup of light sour cream to food processor and blend until creamy.

If you want the dressing to have more heat, add the whole jalapeño with seeds. To make a thinner sauce for a salad dressing, add more olive oil or a little water.
