Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Pin It I confess: this is a total restaurant rip-off. I couldn't help myself, I had to copy it. Drizzle this dressing on salad, on tacos, on fajitas...even on a perfectly cooked over-easy egg. Mmmmm.

This dressing is creamy and just spicy enough to tingle your taste buds. If you want more heat, leave in the jalapeno ribs.

1/2 cup Ranch dressing (I use light)
1 large jalapeno, seeded and ribs removed, and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tomatillo, husk removed, cut into 8ths
2 teaspoons lime juice
1/2 cup cilantro leaves, lightly packed

Combine everything in a blender and blend until smooth.

Makes about 3/4 cup dressing.

  1. I made this at home and absolutely LOVED it!! Thanks so much for posting this - just wondering - where are you?? My daughter got me hooked on your blog and suddenly you have grown quiet! Hope all is well!! Lookforward to more from you!

  2. @Stacey, {laughing} I'm still here. It's super-sweet of you to notice I hadn't posted in a while (almost a month--oops!). I lost my blogging-umph for a while and worked on some neglected/half-finished projects around the house (like re-doing the shelving in my walk-in pantry--a project I wish I'd *never* started!). I have a never-ending list of recipes I want to share, so I'll post something really soon. Thanks!
