Creamy Lime Cilantro Dressing

This is a clone of that fabulous Ranch-style dressing they have at places such as Cafe Rio and Bajio. Pair it with tortilla chips, romaine lettuce, canned corn, canned black beans, chopped tomatoes, and chicken for a delicious salad. My rating: 5 out of 5.

Creamy Lime Cilantro Dressing

1 packet Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch Dressing Mix
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 lime
2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro
1/4 cup La Costena green salsa

Put dressing mix, mayonnaise, and buttermilk in the blender. Juice the lime into the blender. Peel the garlic cloves and then grate them using the small end of a cheese grater. Add to the blender. Add cilantro and green salsa.

Blend until everything is well-combined and then refrigerate for several hours before serving.
