Taco Salad Dressing ~ the perfect dressing to top off a great salad

I really enjoy a good taco salad; especially one made with leftover chili.  The trouble is I don’t eat ranch dressing and just plain sour cream is a little thick to really give a nice dressing type effect to a salad.  So, I created a sour cream based dressing to top off any taco salad.

  • 1/2 cup fresh diced tomato
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 fresh jalapeno ~ finely diced
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • a few sprigs of fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • a pinch of salt and a dash or two of pepper

Dice tomato and combine with lime juice and jalapeno.

Stir in sour cream; add chopped cilantro, sugar, salt and pepper.

If you prefer a smooth dressing you can puree in the food processor or blender; otherwise simple serve as is.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
