  1. I love Cafe Rio. I live in NJ but have a friend that lives in Utah and took me there. I fell in love with the cilantro lime vinaigrette and have tried to recreate it several times. I have come close. I swear I could drink that dressing. @Lyndsay – you should totally try making your own dressing. It is very simple and so much healthier than store bought. When you look at the ingredients list for bottled dressing it is like a science experiment.

    Made this dressing and actually DID drink a small cup (LOL)! Never made dressing before and never had tomatillos but this was easy and delish!!
