Cilantro Lime Ranch

This is a twist on a classic ranch dressing that is so good you could almost eat it with a spoon! It is great as a dip, a condiment in burritos, or of course, on a salad! There are a few versions of this out there that are all knock-offs of Cafe Rio, but this one is my favorite. I got this recipe from an Enrichment activity after we were first married. The recipe for the knock-off sweet pork at Cafe Rio is coming tomorrow with the whole salad coming Wednesday. Yumm......

Cilantro Lime Ranch
1 envelope buttermilk ranch dressing mix (I recommend Hidden Valley)
1 cup mayo
1 cup milk
1/2 bunch cilantro, washed
2 tomatillos, peeled, rinsed, and quartered
1 clove garlic
juice of 1 lime (about 2 Tbs.)

Put everything in the blender and blend until smooth and creamy!

hmmm I was jus thinking about this dressing this morning. There is a place called Surfin Tacos right by our house that is basically our own Cafe Rio and this is their "surf sauce" and I really could drink it like a milkshake. Nasty idea, but so good! haha
