Cilantro Lime Dressing

Hello friends! Wow it has been too long since I have posted.  The last few weeks having been hectic and exciting but I am depriving you of delicious eats and I apologize!  This salad dressing is wonderful.  Some day soon I will post the Thai Chicken Salad that this is amazing on, but for now I will just give you a sneak peak!  This dressing is great on any salad really.  I can see it being amazing on a tostada of sorts…  with some black beans and crispy tortilla strips?? Woah lets make that happen.  For now, just make this lovely dressing and keep it in your fridge.  One night you will be stressing about what to have for dinner and then you will see this gem and think “THANK YOU KELSEY!”.  Trust me.. that will happen.  Anyways… all you have to do is throw a bunch of stuff in a food processor and watch it go!
