That Cilantro Lime Salad Dressing . . .

That Cafe Rio thing has become a favorite of "ours", particularly that sweet pork they put on their salads. Their salad dressings are homemade and I'm partial to the Cilantro Lime one . . . I only want a salad there just because this dressing is so delicious.

1/2 c olive oil
1 lime, juiced
4 garlic cloves
1/2 c cilantro
fresh ground black pepper
1/4 t. sugar
1/8 t. salt

In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the olive oil, lime juice, garlic, cilantro leaves, and black pepper. Process until smooth. Add sugar and salt to taste. Makes 1/2 cup.
