     I recently found a creamy cilantro dressing on one of my favorite light blogs.  It sounded light but full of flavor.  It worked perfectly with the pork and tomatillo dish I was making for dinner. This dressing it light and refreshing on a mixed greens salad or even on bibb lettuce.  It has a ton of flavor from the cilantro, spices, and tomatillo.  It’s a beautiful light green color and has a hint of spice from the red pepper.
