I love, love, love Mexican-style salads! This is for one reason only... the cilantro dressing! I love it so much that I had to figure it out myself! Now, after trial and error, I have the perfectly refreshing salad dressing. Best when served over a bed of romaine lettuce with grilled chicken or shrimp, tomato, crumbled cotija cheese, and tons of slices of fresh avocado! Mmmm!!
