Cheesecake Factory Sante Fe Salad Dressing
Description Cilantro based salad dressing used in the Santa Fe Chicken Salad along with a drizzel of Spicy Peanut Sauce Dressing
3 whole big cloves of garlic, (minced-see instructions)
1 TBSP packed minced fresh ginger (see instructions)
2 bunches cilantro, (rinsed well, most of stalky ends trimmed off) finely chopped (see Instructions)
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1-1/2 tsps wine vinegar
1/2 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 TBSP honey
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup olive oil
Use a food processor. If you do not have one you will need to mince the garlic, ginger and cilantro before adding in the spices, lemon juice, honey, vinegar and cheese. Whisk in the oil so it is emulsified into the dressing.
Food processor instructions:
Drop garlic cloves and ginger through the feed tube while motor is on. Mince well. Add the cilantro and process until finely chopped. Add spices, lime juice, vinegar, honey, and parmesan cheese. Process until well mixed. With motor running slowly pour the oil through the feed tube. Let process one more minute. Enjoy!
To make the salad you will need slivered mixed greens, shredded grilled chicken breast, corn kernals, rinsed black beans, bell pepper, chopped tomato, shredded cheese and toasted tortilla strips.

Re: Cheesecake Factory Sante Fe Salad Dressing
Thank you for posting this! My husband and daughter went out to dinner last night at the Cheesecake Factory, and brought home a Santa Fe salad for me. Unfortunately, there was no dressing in the order. I'm going to make this tomorrow and recreate the salad.
