Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette {Healthy Version)

Recently I took a trip and while waiting at the airport and I got a taco salad at Cafe Rio and fell in love with their Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette. It was like a perfect mix of sweet and sour and really loved the cilantro and lime. When I got home I found the recipe online and decided to give it a try. It came out AMAZING!!!! It’s super easy to make and it only takes a few min! You can also use it for marinades as well.

  • 2 tomatillos
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 of jalapeno pepper (use more if you want it hotter)
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 c. balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing. Here is my favorite recipe
In a food processor or blender (I used my ninja blender), combine tamatillos, cilantro, garlic, jalapeno and lime juice. After it is all blended up well combine with balsamic vinaigrette in a container and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (the longer the better). Then I transfer=er it to a glass bottle and BAM!
