Creamy Tomatillo Dressing (Cafe Rio Style)

I'm very excited to be sharing the final installment of ingredients for the famous Cafe Rio Pulled Pork Mexican Salad. In my opinion, this green, creamy dressing is pretty amazing. It has the perfect amount of zest and creaminess to make your mouth water. Obviously, this works great as a salad dressing, but it can also be served with chicken, fish or other poultry. Try it. Trust me, you will be glad to have this on hand in your fridge.

Creamy Tomatillo Dressing
From Just Cook Already
Yield: about 3 cups

1 cup buttermilk
1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

This works great as a salad dressing, but can also be served with chicken, fish or any other poultry.

Thanks for sharing I have most of these ingredients in my garden - to include the tomatillos which I wasn't sure what to do with yet. I am going to try this!
