Copycat Cheesecake Factory’s Cilantro Sauce

Copycat Cheesecake Factory’s Cilantro Sauce: Sweet n Tangy Cilantro Sauce that’s packed with flavors, fingerlicking yum and ready in 2 minutes.

Make it once and store it in fridge up to 2 weeks in an air-tight container. 

copycat-cheesecake-factory-cilantro-chutneyCan you get enough of those Cheesecake Factory avocado eggrolls with cilantro sauce?

OMG, I just can’t – even after devouring them, I still want to keep going on….they are that delicious! And what I love most is their ‘Cilantro Sauce‘ which is a sweet n tangy with all things good in it.

I’ve looked at many stores for a similar product but haven’t come across anything similar, so decided to make myself a big batch Copycat Cheesecake Factory’s Cilantro Sauce (don’t worry, this recipe has been made endless times).

Copycat Cheesecake Factory's Cilantro Sauce

Everytime I make a huge batch thinking it would last us atleast a month but I don’t know who eats it as it magically disappears in 10-12 days.


It’s so easy that you won’t believe that you never tried making at home. Just get these bunch of ingredients, pulse everything in a blender and BaM – It’s ready to eat!

I’m telling you, make a big batch as if you’re like me (who loves chutneys/sauce), then you’d find yourself having it on all savory food + salads + fried food + Oh my, I’m literally drooling talking about it 😉

So, go ahead, make it and enjoy!

    Sounds great! But I never tried cheese cake factory sauce though. I think this will be perfect for salad dressing too:)

    I make something very similar, and it's amazing. It goes SO well on steak tacos.

    Yaay for Cilantro! My family is very intense about cilantro, as in, we don't treat it as a garnish, rather as an ingredient itself. Everything we make has to be smothered in fresh coriander, otherwise it's just not ready to be served!

      Hehehehhe - that's so us too as in most of our Indian recipes have to be smothered with fresh cilantro or some sort of cilantro sauce with meal just makes a perfect combination. Thanks for visiting Tina :)

    I LOVE the cheesecake factory, and get the eggrolls too! We also like the Thai Lettuce Wraps, and I think this sauce is in that too. It's my favorite. Thanks for making a copycat recipe so we can have it at home!
