Creamy Lime Dressing

“This dressing comes from the Cilantro Lime Slaw recipe. In that recipe, the rough chopped cilantro is combined with the cabbage mix. This creamy lime dressing is great just on it’s own, but cilantro and lime are often paired, so if you want a cilantro lime dressing for a different salad you can add the cilantro here.” – April Ferre
