{Cafe Rio} Creamy Tomatillo Dressing.

Last weekend my cute nephew received his Eagle Scout Award.  {It's kind of a big deal!} We had a big family dinner at my sister's house on Sunday night to celebrate and I was asked to bring a salad.  I've been wanting to try this recipe for a copycat Cafe Rio dressing, for quite some time now.  I'm proud to say....it was right on target.  DEE-LISH.  And not only did people use it as a dressing for the salad {which included corn, black beans, red onion and cucumbers}, but they used it on their tacos as well.  It was THAT good.  And don't let the FRESH tomatillos intimidate you.  You simply just peel them and then slice off the top.  That's it.  

1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch Buttermilk Dressing
1 cup Buttermilk
1 cup Mayonnaise
3 Tomatillos
2 cloves Garlic
1 cup Cilantro
1/2 t. cayenne pepper {I omitted this}

Blend everything in the blender.  Refrigerate.  Shake before serving.

As Yo Gabba Gabba would say {talking about fruits and veggies}.....'Try it!  You'll like it!'
