Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing

It’s Taco Tuesday and bath night for the kids, but I’m really only excited about one of these.  One of my favorite simple meals is a good ole taco salad, but every salad needs a good dressing.  This is mine, but I’m willing to share.  Enjoy!

What You Need:

1 Cup Chopped Cilantro

Juice from 1/2 Lime

1/2 Cup Light Sour Cream (Plain Greek Yogurt may be substituted)

1/4 Cup Low Fat Mayonaise

3 TBS. Whole Milk

1 tsp. Minced Garlic

1/4 tsp. Onion Powder

1 tsp. Cumin

1/8 tsp. Chili Powder

Salt & Pepper to Taste

Optional for Extra Heat: Seeded Chopped Jalapeno

Combine all of the ingredients above in a bullet and blend until smooth and creamy.  Store leftovers (covered) in the refrigerator.  If the dressing becomes thicker than desired, add a little milk and shake or mix.  Use it to top your salad, burrito, tacos, enchiladas or just dip some veggies in it.
