Cilantro and lime is such a fantastic, refreshing combination. This is by far one of my all-time favorite homemade dressings. It is modeled after a dressing at the restaurant Cafe Rio. Every time I would go there I would get extra dressing. It was so good I wanted to drink it. 

Besides only being able to get this dressing at Cafe Rio, similar flavored, store-bought versions have a lot of ingredients including preservatives and flavoring.

Water, Vinegar, Sugar, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Canola Oil, Soybean Oil, Lime Juice Concentrate, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Salt, Contains Less than 2% of Mustard Seed, Onions, Garlic, Spice, Cilantro (Dried), Garlic (Dried), Onions (Dried), Xanthan Gum, Lime Oil, White Wine, Natural Flavoring, Fruit Pectin, Citric Acid, Tartaric Acid, Potassium Sorbate and Calcium Disodium EDTA as Preservatives.
This version is easy to make at home and only has 7 ingredients.
