LPB Cilantro Sauce

Summer.  Cook-Outs.  Pool Parties.

I started to realize that sauces can really take a dish to another level and started to tinker around with making a cilantro sauce.  For year I would make my way, late night, to The Diner, a 24 hour haunt that served a very tasty batch of grilled chicken wings with a cilantro dipping sauce.  Of course, everything tastes great at 2 a.m., but this dish was a winner at any time of the day.  The sauce is great from fried, grilled or baked chicken wings to using for our world famous fajitas bar.

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 1 large bunch of cilantro, stems removed, washed and dried
  • 16 ounces  sour cream
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Making It

  • Put the garlic,  shallot and cilantro in the food processor fitted with the steel blade and mince the three
  • Add the sour cream, cream cheese, lime juice, vinegar, olive oil, salt & pepper and pulse until fully incorporated
  •  Optional:  3-5 dashes of tobacco sauce
