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 this Copycat Cheesecake Factory’s Cilantro Sauce once and store it in the fridge up to 2 weeks in an air-tight container. 


Can 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 at least a month.

But I don’t know who eats it as it magically disappears in 10-12 days … lol


Copycat Cheesecake Factory's Cilantro Sauce

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 πŸ˜‰

So, go ahead, make it and enjoy!

    Can this sauce be frozen? I have a huge batch of fresh cilantro I’d like to try this.

    • Molly Kumar September 20, 2018 (6:54 pm)

      Hi Debra, Yes, it can absolutely be frozen. I have frozen the sauce in an ice-tray. I’ll add the freezing instruction in the post shortly. Thanks, Molly

    Can you substitute anything for tamarind paste? Or where can you get it?

    • Molly Kumar August 29, 2018 (11:48 pm)

      Hi Lisa, The ‘Tamarind Paste’ cannot be substituted as the sauce will not taste the same then. You can get the Tamarind Paste or even tamarind sauce at any Indian store or Asian stores. Thanks

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

  • Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy April 28, 2016 (8:44 am)

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

    • Molly Kumar April 28, 2016 (12:38 pm)

      Thanks Dannii – these sauces work extremely well with meat recipes.

  • Laura | Wandercooks April 28, 2016 (12:14 am)

      You NEEEEED to try them during your next visit, they are all things good πŸ˜‰ Do try this sauce, it goes very well with all savory recipes.

  • Tina Dawson April 27, 2016 (7:38 pm)

    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!

    • Molly Kumar April 29, 2016 (2:44 am)

      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 πŸ™‚

  • Camilla April 27, 2016 (7:35 pm)

    I’ve never heard of this sauce before but the flavours sound awesome so I’d love to try this:-)

  • Kristen April 27, 2016 (7:22 pm)

    My husband love this and will go crazy when I make this!!!

    • Molly Kumar April 28, 2016 (5:53 pm)

      Hahahhahah – I can see you making it soon then πŸ˜‰

  • Kylee @ Kylee Cooks April 27, 2016 (4:18 pm)

    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!

    • Molly Kumar April 28, 2016 (5:55 pm)

      Oh yes, How can I forget the Thai Lettuce Wraps – they are ‘D’ fav πŸ˜‰ I’m glad you’re gonna make the sauce – Hugs Molly
