Cilantro-Lime Dressing

"After having a delicious TGI Friday's grilled chicken salad, I was determined to figure out the Cilantro-Lime salad dressing served with it. This is what I came up with. Delicious for a quick summery dinner. Grilled boneless chicken breasts served over a hearty green salad, and this dressing, voila!"
