Southwest Orzo Pasta Salad SAUCE

original recipe found here

This is one of our favorite family recipes 🙂

After spending $4.99 on a bottle of the dressing that goes into this, I’ve found a couple of online recipes to try out instead for our next batch of this salad:

This one:

1/2 cup plain mayonnaise (weighed this out on my scales at 140g)

2 tsp lime juice

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp cilantro

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp white vinegar

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp crushed garlic

1/8 – 1/4 tsp chile (1/4 was too hot for us)

pinch dried thyme

pinch ground cumin

Method: Combine ingredeitns in a small bowl, cover and chill for at least 1hr before using.  Makes 1/2 cup

and this recipe:

1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce plus 1 tsp sauce (no idea what that is???)

1/2 c mayo

1/3 cup greek yoghurt

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1/4 tsp ground cumin

1/4 tsp dried dill

salt to taste

Method: place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth for 2-3 mins. Store in the fridge for up to 4 wks.
