Balsamic Cilantro Sauce

This sauce is so great because it goes with ANY protein.  It is amazing, and it goes a long way.  It also lasts a long time in the refrigerator. Here are a few of the dishes that I’ve made with it. Lamb, salmon, steak…it is all good!



  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (more if you like a spicy sauce)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 5 large garlic cloves
  • 2/3 cup flat leaf parsley (whole, not chopped)
  • 1 cup cilantro (whole leaf, not chopped)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup avocado oil or olive oil


Combine all ingredients in a small food processor except for the olive oil and avocado oil.  You may need to blend the parsley first and then the cilantro so that it will all fit. Pulse continuously as you pour the olive and avocado oil into the top of the food processor (it will go through the drip holes in the top). Once it is all incorporated, you are good to go!
