Creamy Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dressing

This is the best salad dressing and it is good on sooooo many things! The kids love it with quesadillas and salads and my Cilantro-lime chicken and rice recipe. 

This salad dressing is similar to one you may find at Costa Vida or Cafe Rio, we love mexican food around here so we make this often!

Creamy Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dressing


1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 milk

1 lime, juiced(about 2 Tbsp) 

1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dressing-ignore the package directions

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro

1/4 cup green salsa(La Costeña or Herdez brands are the most common)


1. Combine mayonnaise, milk, lime juice, and the contents of the packet of ranch dressing in a blender. 

2. Add garlic, cilantro, and green salsa to blend thoroughly mix all of the ingredients.

If possible, refrigerate for several hours to allow the dressing to thicken and the flavors to blend.
