This creamy cilantro lime dressing can be used as a dressing for salads or as a light sauce for meats. It's absolutely delicious drizzled over my blackened fish tacos!
With the weather being so unseasonably warm recently, I have been thinking about salads more and more.
Soon I will be planting my herb garden and we always plant cilantro. If you have ever grown cilantro, you know that it can quick take over everything...so we are always looking for something to make with it besides my homemade salsa!
The cilantro is the star of the show in this dressing. The flavor is prominent, and it should be. Honestly, I could have even added a little more. Feel free to play with it. Add more (or less), or throw in some other herbs!
The lime brings out the flavor of the cilantro and adds a citrusy, freshness to the dressing. The Parmesan was a last minute decision and gave the dressing the extra body and flavor I was looking for.
Wait until the dressing is done before you add salt. The Parmesan adds quite a bit, so I only needed a pinch.
Since the garlic is raw, it's important to really break it down. Although we love garlic, it can be very strong when it's raw.
