Yield: 2 cups

Serving size: 2 tbsp.


  • 3 fresh jalapeño peppers
  • 1 cup (16g) fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tsp. (9.9g) freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp. (4.95g) distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (56.7g) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (115g) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup (120g) mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper


  1. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut off the tops of the peppers and slice them in half.
  2. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds.
  3. Chop the peppers into large pieces.
  4. Fit the bowl of a food processor with a steel blade, and add the chopped peppers to the bowl.
  5. Add in the cilantro leaves, lime juice, vinegar, olive oil, sour cream, and mayonnaise.
  6. Place the bowl onto the base of the food processor, secure the lid, and pulse until just combined. Everything should be well mixed but not liquified. The finished dressing should have visible bits of cilantro and jalapeno throughout.
  7. Remove the blade and add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. To store your dressing, pour it into a bottle and cover it with a lid. This dressing will stay fresh for up to a week in the refrigerator.
