This sauce goes well with many different dishes. Since it is such a healthy alternative to a heavier sauce, you will be able to be heavy-handed when scooping it onto your plate. Just make sure that you make enough of it! I usually make a double or triple batch to make sure I’ll have enough.
There are many different replacements for this sauce. Looking for more protein? Or do you want to make it even creamier?
- For more protein, replace sour cream with greek yogurt.
- For a creamier sauce, replace half the sour cream with mayonnaise.
- No fresh (or bottled) lemon juice? Just use lime if you have it, if not, just omit it completely.
- Have extra herbs that you’ve been meaning to use up in the fridge, like cilantro, parsley, mint or oregano? Go ahead and finely chop those up and toss those in as well.
