Cilantro Chutney Sauce

Fresh Cilantro Chutney Sauce

There's nothing better than a delicious sauce to add flavor to your meal, especially one that includes refreshing cilantro! Chutney can be used as a dip, enjoyed with crackers or naan. It can be used as a marinade on grilled corn on the cob, or to top a fresh steak. This cilantro chutney sauce is a diabetes-friendly alternative to sauces and seasonings that may have high sodium or carbohydrates. The plain yogurt adds a bit of protein in each serving, too. This is one of my favorites to add to our family table and I always get compliments on it when I make it. Enjoy!
