This recipe for a Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Dressing is yet another of my stupid simple but delicious recipes. By the time you’ve been low-carbing for four or so years, you’ve eaten so much grilled meat in so many different ways, that you start to rely a little more on sauces than before.
And since you rely more on sauces, you begin to tire of the same old sauces. This Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Dressing is absolutely bursting with flavor and it’s sure to add some pizzazz to just about any dish you can think of!
Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Dressing | Simple 6-Ingredient Dressing
I made a lovely smoked brisket last weekend, but I wanted something a little different to go with it. I am not a huge barbecue sauce fan, so I made this dressing instead. It was a HUGE hit with us and our friends. Which, when you consider how little goes into it, is very surprising.
But don’t let the lack of ingredients fool you. This dressing most certainly doesn’t lack in taste! It’s the perfect dressing to whip up when you’re needing a sauce in a hurry since there are so few ingredients.
You could definitely taste the Jalapeno in the back, but the front taste is all creamy and cilantro-y, so it’s a great combination. It’s a great compliment to a salad, vegetables, and meats of pretty much any kind.
Looking for a great dish to use with this dressing? Check out my Herb Roast Chicken! It’s done from start to finish in about 30 minutes and this sauce really adds a whole new depth of flavor to it.
Another fantastic dish to add this dressing to is my Mexican Pulled Pork! The two together make a fantastic pulled pork taco!
We ate this with brisket, with smoked bratwurst, and with a Swiss Chard Fritatta that tasted great but kept falling apart (I need to redo it). So basically it will go with anything is my point! You’re sure to enjoy this Creamy Jalapeno Cilantro Dressing no matter what you decide to put it on!
