A sauce can totally make the meal and that’s just what this dairy free creamy lemon sauce recipe does, especially if you are serving chicken or fish. The bright, tangy flavor combined with the rich and creamy texture does wonders for making simply prepared proteins taste a bit more special. Best of all it takes no more than 5-minutes to make. All you have to do is put just eight ingredients in a high speed blender, whirl together and serve. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 😉
I initially created the creamy lemon sauce recipe for my gluten-free oven “fried” chicken but I now use it on everything from grilled fish to baked potatoes. It’s also a delicious and clean alternative to Hollandaise sauce when drizzled on asparagus, it makes a great alternative to mayonnaise as a sandwich spread and it’s the perfect dipping sauce for my clean chicken nugget recipe.
Trust me, if you have the sauce ready made and sitting in your fridge you will find a use for it!
