Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing
I had quite a lot of leftover cilantro (my family loves Mexican food), so I whipped up this creamy Cilantro Lime salad dressing. It was an enormous hit, so I quickly wrote down what I used so that I could replicate it.
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup cotija cheese (or parmesan cheese)
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon water
- 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Preparation time 15mins

I’m infamous for not measuring, because I adapted this recipe from a more fattening version called “El Toritos Cilantro and Pepita Salad Dressing”. I suggest that you adjust seasonings to your liking.
In a food processor, add all the ingredients, apart from the olive oil.
Process until the ingredients are emulsified and then slowly drizzle the olive oil until the dressing appears rich and creamy.
You can substitute non-fat Greek Yogurt, rather than mayonnaise for a leaner version.
