Cilantro Lime Dressing

I found this amazing recipe on Rara Bakes.
It's a great food blog! Check it out today!

This dressing is similar to the salad dressing at some Mexican places like Cafe Rio and Bajio. Pour it over your salad, or any Mexican dish.
Easy to make, fabulous to eat!

Creamy Lime Cilantro Dressing

1 packet Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
OR 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar plus enough milk to make 1/2 cup
1 lime
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1/4 cup green salsa

Put dressing mix, mayonnaise, and buttermilk in the blender. Juice the lime into the blender. Peel the garlic cloves and then grate them using the small end of a cheese grater. Add to the blender. Add cilantro and green salsa.

Blend until everything is well-combined and then refrigerate for several hours before serving.

Easy, right? And best of all, it's sooo yummy!
Look for my next recipe post- some fabulous chicken that pairs perfectly with this dressing!
