Once you make it, you’ll want to use it as a dip or dressing for pretty much everything.

What’s In It

This dressing could not be any easier to make! It’s made with only 7 ingredients that you can easily keep on-hand. All you need are:

  • 1 pack of Ranch dressing mix
  • Mayonnaise
  • Milk
  • Lime juice
  • Garlic cloves
  • Cilantro
  • Green Salsa

How to Make Cilantro Lime Dressing

Mix – Just toss everything in a blender or food processor and blend until combined.

Consistency – You can add a little more milk to thin it out, as needed. Also, be careful to dry the cilantro thouroughly if you wash it right before you make the dressing. The extra water can make the dressing noticeably thinner.

How Long Will It Last – Refrigerate the dressing until you’re ready to serve it. This dressing will stay good for about 7 days if you keep it in the refrigerator.

Variations

Extra Creamy – If you want to make the cilantro dressing even creamy, add a half a cup of Greek yogurt along with the other ingredients.

Avocado Lime Dressing – You can also add half of an avocado to this cilantro lime dressing recipe to give this recipe a little delicious avocado flavor.
