This creamy sauce is so refreshing and easy to make, goes great with tacos or as a salad dressing.
I prefer making my own sauces whenever possible:
Many store bought sauces and dressings are filled with preservatives and ingredients I can’t even prononce. By making my own, I know exactly what ingredients I am using. I know life is busy and we can’t always make our own dressings which is why I live by everything in moderation and do my best to eat clean whenever I can. If you make this dressing ahead of time, store in an airtight container or mason jar and keep in refrigerator all week long. It takes more time and a little preparation and planning, but my body thanks me for it!

I created this cilantro lime cream sauce to flavor cabbage slaw for tacos. Place shredded cabbage in a medium-sized bowl and pour sauce over cabbage, mix until combined and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve with my Shrimp Tacos with Grilled Corn.
