Tasty Creamy Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing
The following recipe for a creamy cilantro lime salad dressing is simple to make; all you have to do is add the ingredients to your food processor and let everything blend together. This is a common way (as well as a quick one) of making salad dressing recipes. The honey gives this tangy dressing a touch of sweetness and the sour cream makes it really cream, as well as giving it a great tang. The lime, garlic, red wine garlic, and cilantro add flavor and balance out the taste of this creamy cilantro lime salad dressing.
Serve this dressing over a simple noodle and lettuce leaf salad, perhaps adding some bean sprouts and chopped peanuts. This Asian salad dressing is also nice over plain salad leaves or another kind of basic salad recipe. Always use fresh cilantro for this; dried will not work in this recipe. You can use fresh lime juice too, if you want superior results.
This one is ideal if you are making a Mexican, Tex-Mex or Mexican fusion salad, because you have some typical south of the border flavors in there. Throw this dressing together in minutes, then serve it with your favorite salad for a wonderful result. Everyone is sure to enjoy this amazing salad dressing because the flavors are excellent and go together so well.

Typical South of the border accents are evident in this Mexican inspired salad dressing. This is rich and creamy but still tangy and sweet. The cilantro, garlic and lime add those distinctive Mexican flavors while the oil and vinegar round it out, the sour cream adds creaminess, and a little honey balances out the bite from the lime and vinegar. Try this over anything from mixed baby greens to grilled vegetables, chopped chicken and crunchy veggies, rice, pasta or couscous based salads, or whatever your heart desires to have on your plate.
