Zesty Ranch Dressing

October 27, 2010

This dressing is also know as Cilantro Lime Dressing. I personally refer to it as my delicious Bajio/Cafe Rio Ranch….you know, endless name possibilities. This dressing is amazing on pretty much anything…tacos, salads, napkins (yes, it is that good).

If you are also looking for something delicious to put this zesty ranch on check out my Cafe Rio style sweet pork and chicken taco recipes!
1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch mix

1 c. mayonnaise
1 c. buttermilk (if you do not have buttermilk, just mix 1 tbs white vinegar or lemon juice with 1 cup milk and let it sit for 5 minutes)
2 tomatillos – remove husk, diced (those are the green tomato looking things)
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic
juice of 1 lime
1 jalapeno (if you like is spicy keep in the seeds)


1. Blend it all up in a blender until smooth. Chill for a couple hours before serving.
