Vibrant Verde Vegan Sauce

Hands down, this is one of my best and easiest sauces that I’ve made. It’s also one of my most popular recipes.

I put this vibrant verde sauce on grilled chicken and vegetable kabobs (picture not posted… I ate my meal too fast before I remembered to take a picture –> GUILTY!). It’s versatile and can be used as a salad dressing, dipping sauce or topping on fish, pork chops and a lean steak! Please enjoy!


Food processor OR a quality blender

Cutting board

Chefs knife




1 bunch cilantro (about 1 cup, packed)

2 garlic cloves

1/2 cup tahini

Juice from 1 whole lemon (seeds removed)

Salt and Pepper, to taste

1/4th cup extra virgin olive oil (use a quality brand for best flavor)



  1. Put the first 5 ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  2. After cilantro and garlic are pureed together (it may look chunky, but that’s ok) – slowly drizzle the olive oil in the mix until it’s completely blended smooth.
  3. Use a spatula to remove the sauce into a glass container.
  4. If there is any vibrant verde vegan sauce leftover, store in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.


It tastes so creamy and delicious. My husband was eating it by the spoonful. Completely vegan and diabetic friendly = free carb choice.
