Did you use a stick blender?
Yes, but you can also use a traditional blender for this recipe.
I made this tonight and it was way too salty and garlicy. I saved it though! I added more sour cream to also help thicken it up, it was way too runny. I also added some mayo. If I make this again, I will cut back on the 6 cloves of garlic and use a 1/2t salt and also start with 1/8 cup of water. I did use a half of a jalapeno.
This dressing is incredible! This is my first recipe to make from twosleevers. It is so good I could drink it!
Best spicy dressing I have ever had.
It’s so addictive isn’t it? I eat it with a spoon sometimes
Good flavor, but very runny, not really creamy.
This looks so good! Do you think I could substitute Hellmann's vegan mayo for the sour cream/greek yogurt, or would that change the flavor too much?
I think substituting mayo would be fine but will change the texture more to a store bought creamy salad dressing 🙂
I'm enjowing the Jalapeño Cilantro dressing on my salad today. Thank you!
Yay! It's pretty tasty for something that simple right?
What is the serving size?
About 2 tablespoons
This and the Easy Asian Peanut Dressing both look great and so easy! I'm curious, do you know how long they'll last in the fridge, or do you eat most/all of it in one meal?
Mine have been in the fridge for over a week and they seem to be doing great. I think the peanut one will last longer. The cilantro one I'd eat within a week if possible.
