Lime Cilantro Dressing – For a Festive Taco Salad

This Lime Cilantro Dressing is slightly sweet and works well on my Festive Chicken Taco Salad or perhaps a nice salad of Spring light greens. Also use it as a marinade for grilled chicken or fish. I’ve even used it to dress a fresh pineapple, strawberry, and orange salad as a side for a brunch buffet (omit the garlic from the dressing).
