Do you know what this is...?

If you're a sucker for Cafe Rio's creamy dressing like I am then you know what it is...I made it tonight for our taco salad and it was YUMMY...

  • 1 pkg. Hidden Valley ranch dressing mix
  • 2 tomatillos
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 bunches cilantro, including stems (I didn't include the stems)
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded
  • juice of 1 lime

IN THE BLENDER: Make ranch dressing according to package directions, except use 1/2 of the milk. Gradually add each additional ingredient one at a time to the blender, blending as you go. Chill and serve.

I'M SO EXCITED TO TRY THIS!! A few girls that I've met here got together a couple weeks ago and had "cafe rio" salads, one of them made the dressing and it was pretty close, but I can't wait to try this one!! Thanks for the recipe!!

Nice...now only if I had one of those adorable little Mexican ladies of my very own to make me fresh tortillas!
