This dressing is inspired by the macho salad at Bandera’s restaurant. This is one of my all-time favorite salads and the dressing that they use on it is usually a champagne vinaigrette. I thought I would switch it up and add a little bit of cilantro, lime, and scallions, and give it a little southwestern flare! I love using this salad dressing on my macho salad, as well as using it to marinate fish, grilled veggies, and as a saucy dressing in rice, quinoa and lentils.
