Tangy Cilantro Dressing and Marinade

I wanted to make Cajun Spiced Beef Skewers, so needed a sauce. I’ve adapted a recipe for a Tangy Cilantro Dressing & Marinade from The Daily Dietribe to be low-amine. I used the sauce drizzled over the top of the skewers once served, and saved the rest as a salad dressing.

Cilantro Dressing & Marinade

  • Blend cilantro, garlic, sugar, and lime juice in a food processor until well-processed.
  • Add all other ingredients and blend.
  • Serve with a dish, as a dressing, use as a low-amine marinade, or save in a bottle for later in the fridge.
