5 minute magic green sauce

I love this sauce – its is great as a side to main meals, on salads or used as a dip.  Simply adding more water will make it thinner to use as a drizzle dressing or marinade.  It will keep in the fridge for a week, and you can substitute the pistachios for pecan or walnuts if you prefer.  The recipe is from tasteofyum website


  • 1 avocado
  • 1 cup packed parsley and coriander leaves (combined)
  • 1 jalapeño, ribs and seeds removed
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • juice of one lime (or two – get lots of limey goodness in there!)
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pistachios (you can sub other nuts – see notes)


Pulse all ingredients – except pistachios – in a food processor until incorporated.
Add pistachios and pulse until mostly smooth (depends on what consistency you want).
