Rated 5 out of 5 by from Restaurant worthy dinner I never enjoy salads made from home; because they just aren't as flavorful as restaurant salads, that was until I made Grilled Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad! My new favorite salad dressing is the cilantro dressing in this recipe. Be sure to try this out!
