Taco Salad Dressing


This taco salad dressing is a creamy cilantro dressing. It is spectacular and complements a taco salad beautifully. Well, really, it complements any kind of Tex-Mex salad that you want to make.

If you can not find sour cream where you are at, this substitute will work just fine.

When you are making this taco salad dressing, make sure that the cilantro is very fresh. Use the stems as well. They are loaded in flavor. Of course, if you are one of those people who hate cilantro this is not the recipe for you!
