I know you all love Cafe Rio out there and you've all had this amazing dressing. It is a cinch to make in your blender or food processor, so don't be afraid! It goes wonderfully with lots of different dishes. My favorite being their Cafe Rio Pork, which I'll have to post soon and a delicious chicken recipe we tried last week that I will post on Wednesday. This dressing is creamy, and full of flavor, with just a hint of spice and lime. It really goes great with any Mexican dish!
Cafe Rio Tomatillo House Dressing
not sure where original recipe comes from, but this is Callie's version of it
1/3 c buttermilk (or you can do 1/3 c milk to 1/3 T vinegar or lemon juice and let set 5 minutes)
Place the following in a blender/food processor and blend:
3-4 fresh tomatillos, quartered and skinned
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1 c mayonnaise
1 packet Ranch Dressing (dry)
1 jalapeno diced (leave seeds out for less heat)
2 cloves garlic crushed
Cilantro to taste (or none at all)
Now add buttermilk to blender and blend! Refrigerate one hour before serving.
