Tasty Tuesday: Tomatillo Ranch Dressing

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

This dressing always makes dinner superb.
Like, I'm literally drooling thinking about it.
Who knew salad could be soo yummy??

In fact, I could probably have this once a week, but I don't want to get sick of it. 
I love me a good salad, especially when the dressing is so good you wanna lick the bowl. 
Good thing I can do so in my own home! 
Hunter is always a huge fan of having this tangy dressing with dinner even though he didn't seem too excited at first when I said salad was for dinner. Just salad. 
It's all about the dressing people. 

1 tomatillo 
1/2 fresh Jalapeno (more or less depending on your spice tolerance) 
1 bunch of cilantro (no stems)
1/2 lime 
About 1 1/2 cups already made ranch dressing

Cut tomatillo into about six pieces and place in blender taking out middle. (Like you would a tomato) Cut Jalepeno in half and toss that in your blender as well. Cut off cilantro stems and throw it in the blender. Add your ranch and squeeze your lime then blend until all is well mixed. Such a yummy flavor! 

We made our salads Cafe Rio style because the dressing is very similar. If you don't know what Cafe Rio is... I'm sorry. But really look up the closest one and go get a sweet pork salad! 
On with it... I made chicken with fajita seasoning. We put the yummy tortilla land tortilla on the bottom of the bowl, next cheese, then black beans, rice (fajita flavor of the Lipton package. It's really good), chicken, lettuce, tomato, cilantro, guacamole, sour cream, tortilla strips, dressing, in that order. SO GOOD! This should probably be on your menu this coming week!
Happy Tasty Tuesday!
