Tomatillo Ranch Dressing

Megan3119 views

If you have ever eaten at Cafe Rio, surely you have been introduced to the phenominal dressing served with their salads. Well, I think this one tastes even better, not that I am biased or anything… I’m not a huge fan of spicy dressings, so I made this one a bit less firey than the one served in the restaurant. If you are a spice-wimp like me, you will love this dressing. You might just eat it on everything–salad, chopped veggies, chips, rice, quesadillas–the possibilities are endless. If you aren’t like me, well, search Google for the original recipe with more spice. Enjoy!
