How to Make Cilantro Lime Dressing:

Sauce recipes like this one make me happy because they’re super simple. Just add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender or a food processor, and pulse until everything’s combined.

Be sure to leave some small visible bits of cilantro in there. It tastes better if you stop blending before all of the ingredients have completely combined.
