Cafe Rio Copycat Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing

 Cafe Rio Copycat Creamy Cilantro-Lime Dressing - So yummy!- Blissful and Domestic -

Do you remember that one time, your favorite blogger promised a grocery haul video? Oh and that same blogger promised it would include her shopping trip too? Did you know it was going to be full of highlights of where she shopped, what she bought, and all that good stuff? Did you know that very same blogger made the video, but realized she shot the whole video upside down. Oh yeah that blogger was me :) It is probably one of my biggest blond moments ever. I am now figuring out how to edit and rotate the video, so all you lovelies can see how I do once a month shopping. So while I figure out all the technical stuff, I am going to share a new recipe with you. We had the missionaries over earlier this week and I made my new favorite meal! It was slow cooked sweet pork, which I will share later this weekend (it is full of amazing sauce). On top of that slow cooked sweet pork, we had creamy cilantro-lime dressing. Oh my heck guys! I would go to the moon and back for this stuff! It is a copycat of Cafe Rio's dressing and it is delish! I could eat this creamy goodness by the spoonful, not that I did though, cause then hubby would stare and it would be a whole awkward moment. I definitely thought about it though. It is great on meat, salads, you name it! Make your self some and enjoy!

My mason jar above is holding a double batch of dressing :)

Creamy Cilantro-Lime Dressing
1 pack (1oz) Ranch Dressing Mix
1cup mayo
1/2 cup half and half (milk will work too)
6 tbl lime juice
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup green taco sauce

Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor and enjoy!

Crazy simple right!

  1. That stuff looks really good, and I have a lot of cilantro growing wild in my greenhouse, but what is green taco sauce? Is that the super hot spicy green sauce that comes in the little glass bottle?

  2. Looks good. We love Cafe Rio so I am going to try this! Thanks.

  3. I'm curious how long will this keep in the fridge? AND, do you think it's freezable?

  4. Yes I am curious as well as to how long this keeps. Thanks!
