Creamy Lime-Cilantro Ranch Dressing
Well, this recipe is the closest I have ever come! We made the salad for dinner tonight and it was so dang good! This dressing had a little bite to it, but it was so good! And even the little munchkin liked it! Now I just need to find a recipe for everything else they put in their salads. I found a super good chicken marinade, but nothing seems to be as juicy as their stuff all is. Oh well. I will perfect this someday!
Here is the dressing recipe that I found on Our Best Bites.
1 pack (1oz) Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix
1/2 C milk
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 C roughly chopped cilantro
1/4 C green salsa
This recipe is pretty tricky...dump it all in the blender and mix until combined. Don't add the hot sauce until you taste how spicy the dressing is. I used a green salsa that was quite spicy, so it didn't need any of the hot sauce.
Once it's combined, give it a few hours in the fridge before using it to allow it to thicken a little bit. Then enjoy over a tasty salad or as a dip.
