    Aussie-In-California's Note:

    I love this dressing at El Torito. I could sit there and just eat it with a spoon. I found this copy-cat recipe and I wanted to post it so I can make it myself, and secretly eat it straight from the jar :-)

      This dressing is fantastic, but holy moly it is fattening! I replaced the mayo with yogurt and it tastes exactly the same! Delicious!

      I was actually searching for a copycat recipe for El Pollo Loco's creamy cilantro dressing, but nothing I found sounded right. I love their's but WOW! this is even better. I never go to to El Torito, so can't comment on how close it is to the original, but this is excellent -- just what I was hoping for. Thank you! My search is over. :)
