The lime cilantro dressing is nice and fresh with a bit of sweet. As I have mentioned before, cilantro plays a important role in removing heavy metals and other toxins from our bodies. It is also high in folic-acid, vitamin C and A. Although my girls definitely prefer my Maple Balsamic Dressing they did enjoy this one as well. We hope you do too.
