Pour over the sour cream in a small bowl and stir well to combine. Can be used right away or chilled at least an hour for best flavor.
¾ cup sour cream
If you do not have a mortar and pestle
Finely chop your cilantro and place in a small prep bowl. Use a spoon to gently smear the cilantro to the bottom of the bowl - you want to release some of the oils for flavor.
12 fresh cilantro leaves
Either use finely ground salt or grind your salt in a grinder. Add the salt and lime juice to the cilantro, mix well.
¼ teaspoon coarse sea salt, 1 Tablespoon lime juice
Mix together with the sour cream in a small bowl. Can serve immediately or chill at least an hour for best flavor.
Serving sizes and nutritional values are estimated. We use this as a topping here for tacos, fajitas and other great foods.You can use Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream if you prefer.For the salt - we use coarse Himalayan sea salt and grind it with the cilantro. You can use regular salt or finely ground sea salt in place of the coarse salt - still a quarter teaspoon. This doesn't have a lot of cilantro in it on purpose - we don't like the strong taste of too much. Taste your sour cream to see if you want to add more cilantro or not, some people like it more then others. We do not add the stems, just the leaves off of the stems.
