Karl’s Kefir, Lime and Mint Sauce

Miriam was specific on what sauces she wanted for her kofta. She wanted a sauce with kefir, mint, and lime. The recipes on-line were either too simple or had way too many ingredients. I wanted something that was cooling, clean, and fresh.

                                     Karl’s Pomegranate Chili Sauce
Karl’s Sour Cream and Lemon Sauce

After Dinner Note: My dinners decided that combining this sauce with the Karl’s Pomegranate Chili sauce was the wining combination.

Karl’s Kefir, Lime and Mint Sauce


1/3 cup kefir
¼ cup fresh mint, minced
2 Tbs. lime juice, fresh (zest and juice of one lime)
2 tsp. honey
½ tsp. lime zest
½ tsp. black pepper
Pinch Kosher salt


1. Put all of the ingredients into a small bowl and mix well.

Tip: I found that an 8 ounce jam jar was the perfect container to mix the sauce.

2. Let the sauce meld for at least 20 minutes at room temperature.
