And did I mention that I'm loving Mexican Everyday by Rick Bayless? One more reason is that it includes sooo many recipes for unusual salad dressings. Some are a little more complicated. Others, like this, are no brainers.
NUTRITION NOTES I 'watered' the dressing a bit to create no-calorie volume and reduced the oil. So each tablespoon of dressing has zero points -- though 2 tablespoons does add up to a point. It was so easy and tastes great.
FROM THE ARCHIVES Check the Recipe Box for salad dressing recipes.
TWO YEARS AGO I was on vacation but featured a 2003 Kitchen Parade that just happens -- how lucky is this? -- three favorite salad dressings!
GREAT FOOD BLOGS that also USE SALSA in SALAD DRESSING

EASY SALSA DRESSING
Time to table: 10 minutes
Makes 1 1/2 cups
1/2 cup good salsa
Zest & juice of a lime (about 2 tablespoons)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 cup water (this was my addition, to create more volume without calories)
Salt to taste
Oil to taste -- Rick Bayless uses 3/4 cup, I used 1/2 cup
Mix all the ingredients in the blender except the oil. Then drizzle oil while processor is running - this creates a lighter dressing with more volume.
