A quick and zesty vegan yogurt sauce that’s perfect for dressing up salads or serving as a tangy dip. Made with dairy-free yogurt, fresh cilantro, lime juice, and a kick of garlic, this sauce is a deliciously fresh addition to any meal.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup dairy-free yogurt ((plain, unsweetened))
  • 12 garlic cloves ((adjust to taste))
  • 12 tbsps lime juice ((adjust to taste))
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 23 cilantro sprigs
  • salt ((to taste))
  • black pepper ((to taste))


  1. In a food processor, combine the garlic, cilantro, olive oil, and lime juice. Pulse until the ingredients are finely chopped and well blended. Pour the mixture into a bowl.
  2. Add the non-dairy yogurt to the bowl with the herb and garlic mixture.
  3. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Stir the sauce until smooth and fully combined.

For a smoother sauce: Ensure the yogurt is well whisked before blending with other ingredients.

Get creative: The sauce can be personalized by adding other herbs or spices according to your preference.
