Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

There is a great Mexican restaurant here in Utah called Cafe Rio.  All their food on their menu is awesome.  Many of you may have tried my version of Cafe Rio’s Sweet Pork which is used in their tacos, tostadas, burritos, salads etc.  I have had the tostada their with the sweet pork and cilantro lime vinaigrette dressing.  I saw a recipe from one blogger at Favorite Family Recipes who said she felt she had the recipe figured out.  So I had to give it a try.

I think it was close but not exact.  However, even though it isn’t the exact Cafe Rio version, this dressing is still great.  I enjoyed it on a salad topped with Costa Vida Chicken.  The difference for me is I don’t think the balsamic vinegar is right.  It needs to be a different vinegar.  So, I have one other recipe on my list to try on from Our Best Bites.  I am hoping to try that version very soon and see how it compares.
