Cilantro and Mint Sauce (Creamy!)

5 from 1 reviews

This Cilantro and Mint Sauce is quick and easy to make in just 5 minutes, and full of bright, zesty, and spicy flavors! It’s wonderfullycreamy, and is delicious as a dip, spread, and dressing!




  1. Prepare the fresh ingredients: Wash and pat-dry the coriander and mint leaves. Roughly chop the green chilies and garlic cloves if your blender is not very powerful.
  2. Blend: Combine the coriander, mint leaves, green chilies, garlic, mayonnaise, Greek style yogurt (if using) ground cumin, ground cayenne, kosher salt, and lime juice in a high-speed blender or food processor. Cover and blend until smooth. (You may need to uncover and push down the ingredients and stir with a spoon 1-2 times in between if you’re blender is not very powerful.) Taste and stir in more kosher salt or lime juice if needed.
  3. Serve: Use immediately or transfer to a sealed airtight container and store in the fridge until ready to use. Enjoy in kebabs, kathi rolls, salads, sandwiches, burgers, tacos, and use as a dip, spread, or dressing.
  4. Storing: Store in a sealed airtight jar/container in the fridge and consume within 5-7 days.


  1. Green chilies and ground cayenne. Use mild green chilies and deseed them for a milder sauce. Or omit them and the ground cayenne to make a completely mild sauce.
  2. Greek style yogurt. Leave out the Greek style yogurt if a thicker and creamier sauce is desired. You can add more lime juice for tang, but a thicker and creamier sauce is great for using as a dip. But honestly, the sauce tastes wonderful with everything either with or without the yogurt!
  3. See post above for more ideas on ways to enjoy this sauce.
