Homemade salad dressings is one of my favorite things to prepare. I love making dips, dressings, vinaigrettes, and marinades. They are a simple way to add a lot of flavor to anything. My homemade creamy dill dressing is what I prepare most often, and I like a Basil Green Goddess dressing as well.

I wanted something a little different this time, something that would go with the slow cooked pork shoulder I made for dinner last night. It occurred to me that tequila was the answer! Tequila is a funny thing, because I rarely drink it. I love the flavor, but I don’t love how it makes me feel. But a little bit in a salad dressing isn’t going to make me feel bad and will allow for that yummy flavor!

I literally had to dust off the bottle, since it had been sitting there so long. A little bit goes a long way, so don’t pour it in the mixture like crazy. You only need an ounce or less, depending on the strength of the tequila flavor you want.

Be sure to not go too crazy with the cilantro either, because it can become overwhelming quickly. I use approximately have a bunch of cilantro in this creamy tequila, cilantro and lime salad dressing.
