Zesty Lime Dressing/Marinade

Slightly spicy salad dressing and marinade. A nice change from ranch or salsa on a taco salad. Wonderful as a marinade for grilled chicken or steak. The flavors blend well so it's not overpowered by any one flavor. One of my favs when I'm in the "South of the Border" mood!
