Lime Cilantro Dressing


Hi all–  Well, I guess I don’t need to tell you how to put together a taco salad.  You’ve probably made more than a few of them yourself.  That’s what we had for dinner.   But you might want to know about about the creamy green dressing we slathered on top.  It’s a kind of ranch dressing with a spanish accent!  Pretty and delicious all in one jar.

1/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup unflavored yogurt
1 tab. lime juice (about 1 lime’s worth)
1/2 tsp. finely grated lime peel
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tab. tarragon vinegar*
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1/2 tsp. sea salt

This couldn’t be easier.  Just drop all the ingredients into a blender or grind them with a stick blender til smooth.  Viola!

*I love tarragon vinegar–not too sharp, lovely flavor.  You can use whatever your favorite vinegar happens to be.


P.S.– And what was in our taco salad?  Layered on a platter, there was, lettuce, cilantro, black beans, corn, tomato, red bell pepper bits, jicama, leftover roast chicken, avocado, cortijo cheese and, of course, the dressing!  Along with a hunk of cornbread, it’s dinner!
