How can I use this dressing?
Get creative! You can use this dressing any way you want! Of course, you can pour it on a Southwestern salad or as a dip for your enchiladas and quesadillas. But you could also use it as a minimalist pasta dressing, a seasoning to brush on top of freshly baked rolls, or as a marinade for fresh veggies.
