Bright green and super creamy with a touch of heat, this Cilantro Ginger Jalapeno Sauce is a great choice as a dip, a spread in wraps or sandwiches, or a coating for spiralized veggie noodles.


  • 1 jalapeño pepper (scrape out some of the seeds to make it less spicy if you prefer)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1/2 avocado, pitted
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lime juice (plus more to thin if needed)
  • 1 big handful of cilantro leaves
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • pinch of sea salt


  • Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and whirl them around until completely smooth.
  • Add a little more water or lime juice to thin as needed. Season to taste with sea salt and black pepper.
