This zesty Cilantro-Lime Coconut Yogurt Sauce is dairy-free, Paleo and AIP-friendly. Perfect for grilled seafood, chicken or veggies!

Seriously, this sauce goes with everything. It is the quintessential versatile summer sauce or dressing. Break out that grill and a blender and get started on your next summer grilling sesh! The bright and fresh flavors of cilantro and lime pair perfectly with anything you can cook on the grill.

Here is an incomplete and ever-growing list of everything our recipe creator has paired this sauce with, and she says every single combo was über scrumptious:

  • shrimp
  • salmon
  • cod
  • grilled asparagus
  • roasted zucchini
  • grilled yellow summer squash
  • chicken thighs and breasts
  • sautéed kale
  • multiple different salads with a variety of vegetables

Here are a few things I have not yet tried with this cilantro lime sauce, but just the thought makes my mouth water:

  • steak
  • potatoes (for the non-AIPers in our life or once we’ve reintroduced)
  • grilled pork chops
  • as a dip for a million different fresh veggies

TIP: If you can’t find additive-free coconut yogurt (most of them contain nasty gums and emulsifiers), you can make it yourself with one of these easy DIY Coconut Yogurt recipes – Countertop Coconut Yogurt or Instant Pot Coconut Yogurt. If you’re sensitive to coconut, you could try this recipe for Tigernut Yogurt from Eat Beautiful.

Added bonus: the yogurt makes this recipe gut-friendly with a boost of probiotics!
