Fancy Green Sauce for Everything

Yields1 ServingPrep Time15 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time20 mins

Okay, so this sauce is not only super easy to make, it's also super delicious and very versatile. I usually make a big batch of it and portion it out. Some is smothered over chicken breasts as a marinade for dinner, some goes in a bowl – the kiddos snag that right away with some fresh corn ships as a snack and some is stored in the fridge for another day. Use as a marinade, spread, or a dip. This also makes a great dressing for a salad, just thin the sauce out with a little extra virgin olive oil or water.

 1 large ripe avocado
 1 cup parsley and cilantro leavescombined and packed
 1 jalapenoribs and seeds removed (leave if you like the heat)
 2 cloves garlic
 2 fresh limesjuiced and strained
 ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
 ½ cup pistachios
 ½ tsp Celtic sea salt
 ½ tsp fresh cracked black pepper
 ½ cup water

Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor except for the pistachios until well incorporated.


Add the pistachios and pulse until smooth.
