To. Die. For. Creamy Southwest Salad Dressing...

Years ago I discovered Rachael Ray on Food Network.  I ADORED her show called 30 Minute Meals.  I learned so so much about food and how to cook from watching her. (Thank you, Rachael!!!!).  I was SHOCKED when I watched her make her own salad dressings!!  I know, I know.  That's ridiculous, I get it.  But for some reason, I never even thought about salad dressing coming from anywhere except in a bottle from the grocery store!!!  Since then, I've made many different types of salad dressings. It's so easy and inexpensive, too!  Plus, they always taste WAY better!!!

Today I want to share with y'all the BEST Creamy Southwest Salad Dressing.  I could eat this by the spoonful!!  No joke!!  It's that good!!!!  Don't believe me?  Give it a try!  And let me know what you think!!!  

Tonight we're having tacos for dinner and this dressing will go with just a simple side salad of lettuce and tomatoes.  However, it'll also be really, really good with Chicken Taco Salad!!

Here's what you need...

Creamy Southwest Salad Dressing

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 T honey
juice of 1 lime
1 T Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
2 t cumin
1 t paprika
1 t Chipotle Chili Powder

Directions are simple.  Just measure everything out and mix together.  Be sure and taste it to make sure it has the level of salt you like.  

This is so sooo delicious!!  Mmmmm I can't wait for dinner tonight!!!

Thank's for reminding us how easy it is to make our own dressings - growing up Mum always used to get us to make our own! This one sounds yummy and easy to veganize so I'll add it to my list! Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday (I couldn't find your party link page?)

Seasonings were good but way too sweet for me. Had to basically double the recipe to cut the sweetness.
