Amy's Cilantro Cream Sauce

I just love the sound of the blend of garlic, cumin and lime with the cilantro in this Cilantro Cream Sauce recipe. When I came across it on the Allrecipes website and read some of the hundred or so rave reviews that had been written, I checked the Zaar recipes, which all sounded quite different again from this one and, I thought, well there are probably some other Zaar members who would also like to try this recipe. Being timid around spicy flavours, I’ll be leaving those out – whereas some chefs will I know be increasing their heat – but the rest of the flavour combinations sound really tempting. I was also struck by the versatility offered by this recipe, something that is also true of the other Zaar recipes for Cilantro Sauce, some of which I’ve saved and will also be trying. I particularly liked the sound of Merlot’s Hazelnut & Cilantro Pasta Sauce #31361. Amy’s Cilantro Cream Sauce can be used as a dip, as a sauce for grilled fish, chicken or steamed vegetables, as a salad dressing, folded through mashed potatoes or as a pasta sauce. Since I haven’t yet made this, I’ve posted it exactly as I found it on the Allrecipes website. Thank you, Amy. Some reviewers had made it with low fat cheese and cream with excellent results, some added chopped green onions and some used fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I’ll be looking for an alternative to the tomatillo salsa. Any suggestions are most welcome. I’ve estimated the preparation time to be 5-10 minutes.
