Cilantro-Ranch Dressing

This is my rendition of Cafe Rio's house salad dressing- not a promised copy, but it offers similar flavor.

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup mayonaise
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 envelope hidden valley ranch dip mix
  • 3 tomatillos, washed and quartered
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde
  • ~1 cup fresh cilantro, stems removed

Blast everything in a blender.  It will be a bit runny, pop it in the fridge an hour or so and allow flavors to meld and consistency to thicken.

  • You can use all mayo or all sour cream, whatever is on hand
  • Tomatillos are found in the produce section, often by either bell peppers, or ginger/squash/mushrooms.  Wash your tomatillos first, they are sticky.

Yields about 2 cups.
