Okay all you sauce loving readers of mine, this one’s for you.

A perfect 5 minute paleo green onion and cilantro sauce for you to put on EVERYTHING.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again (and again, and again… 😜) NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A GOOD SAUCE. It can literally take a meal from pretty okay to out-of-this-world amazing.

This green onion and cilantro loaded sauce has been on a very steady rotation in our house for at least the past 4 months.

I think I first made it at work on a whim and then made it again and again at home and beyond.

It sat in on an impromptu post-moving-day dinner with friends and turned our simple cast iron seared tri-tip steak into something super special and yummy. Has been poured over a pile of buckwheat soba noodles many times, and also marinated some crisp cucumber slices to crunchy tangy perfection (more on that one, in another post! 😉)

Even though the first day of fall is literally right around the corner, I’ll still start some of my mornings with healthy and vibrant smoothies. Especially when they’re loaded up with immune boosting good stuff like vitamin C, anti-inflammatory turmeric and the good-for-you fat of sweet and creamy coconut milk. 

Plus, sometimes as the days grow shorter it helps a little bit to have something that looks (and tastes) like sunshine in your glass 😉
