This seriously addicting light dressing is the perfect topping on any salad or even great as a dip. Not a fan of cilantro? No worries, this dressing has so much flavor without, leave it out and add some fresh parsley instead.
The base of this recipe is a homemade ranch, with light buttermilk, Greek yogurt, low fat mayonnaise. Cilantro, lime, jalapeños, tomatillos scallions and spices give this dressing a Mexican flair, perfect served over cilantro lime rice, black beans and sweet slow cooked pork barbacoa to create your very own homemade Cafe Rio salad! Also fabulous over shrimp or chicken!
Use your leftover buttermilk to make buttermilk pancakes, strawberry scones, Irish soda bread muffins, skinny ranch dip and more!

So good!!!! I paired this with the GRILLED FLANK STEAK WITH BLACK BEAN AND CORN SALSA recipe and made a salad. They went together perfectly to me! I loved this so much that I am making it again this weekend so my girls can try it!
Yay! So glad you enjoyed it!
So delicious and large serving!!!! Only. 1 blue point! This is a must try. When you make the accompanying meatballs add some zucchini to keep them moist I found that without it they got a little dry.
