Dressing...with a KICK...

We recently went to some new church friend's house for dinner. Not only did we fall in love with their family, but we fell IN LOVE with their homemade dressing recipe! I seriously COULD NOT stop thinking about it after that evening. And, sweet Irline even made me some and brought it to church! :) Since it's something that she just makes according to her taste, she doesn't have a recipe, but she gave me a pretty good idea of how to make it. I haven't done it on my own yet...but I can't wait to try!

Here are the ingredients:
buttermilk ranch
fresh cilantro

And, she said...
Try 1 cup ranch, 1 cup of cilantro leaves (do not include the stem), half of jalapeno with some seeds (it's the seeds that gives the spice so it's up to you how spicy you want it) and about 2 tbs of honey. I use a magic bullet to blend all together. You can use a food processor, however a blender may be too big. And don't forget the lime!

And, even though I think it would be good on ANYTHING (especially a great chicken nugget dip), she served it over salad with cheese, tomato, beans and corn! It was GOOOOOODDD!
