This cilantro lime dressing recipe is actually one that I made and shared 5 years ago. I thought I would give it a face lift since I love it so much, and my photography back then just didn’t do it justice! I was excited to try it again. It may even compare to Cafe Rio’s cilantro lime salad dressing. Yum!

If there’s one down side to blogging, it’s that you are always recipe testing and creating so many new things, that you don’t always get to go back and enjoy your favorites very often. This one is good on so many things. Including a corn salad recipe that I have also redone and will be reposting next week. Stay tuned!
