New Recipe: Creamy Cilantro-Tomatillo Dressing

Like anyone else who tries to get their veggies in, I eat a LOT of salad.  I have a million dressings in my fridge (lite ranch, lite catalina, lite honey mustard, 5 different vinaigrettes, lite salsa ranch...)  You name it, I've got it.
A rare view of my fridge, and a glimpse at part of my collection o' dressings.
When you have this many dressings, what's one more?  

I found a recipe for a delicious Creamy Cilantro-Tomatillo Dressing on Skinny Taste a few months ago that I wanted to try.  If you currently don't subscribe/follow Skinny Taste, why not???  She's brilliant!

Also, this dressing seemed to me to be a knock off of one of my favorite mexi-ranch style dressings that I find at Cafe Rio.  I was conservative with the jalepeno, and I recommend the same on your side.  You can always add more, but you can't take it out once it's in there.  

Doesn't it look pretty?
My ingredients... Thanks, Whole Foods

Tomatillos.... Mmmmm

You literally toss all the ingredients in a blender/food processor - - EASY!
And... you're done!
