Cafe Rio Cilantro Ranch Dressing

Okay so for Cafe Rio salads, your layers should include, from bottom to top: a tortilla, Romaine lettuce, your cooked meat of choice, black beans, tortilla strips/crushed tortilla chips, then cilantro ranch dressing. It's an awesome, filling meal! Here's their official dressing--tastes just the same! Recipe from Fav Family Recipes!

  • 1 packet TRADITIONAL Hidden Valley Ranch mix (not BUTTERMILK)
  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 2 tomatillos, remove husk, diced
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno (we like it SPICY so we kept the seeds in it, if you like it mild, just remove the seeds)
  • Mix all ingredients together in the blender. That's it!
