Cilantro is not only super delish but it also makes recipes look so pretty.
The bright green color and pretty leaves add just the bling needed to top off soup, salad and almost any type of Mexican food.
One of my fave salad dressings is one made by a restaurant called El Torito Grill.
It’s so delicious. It’s also available in supermarkets by the bottled salad dressings.
Here’s a version of this salad dressing that tastes great on a salad, as a dip, or used in place of mayonnaise on a burger or sandwich.
The vinegar adds a tasty pop to the dressing and the garlic is the perfect compliment to the fresh flavor of the cilantro and touch of lime.
So give this super tasty dressing a try. Your taste buds will be very happy.
Have a great rest of the week and thank you so much for stopping by!
