I have absolutely no idea why I took so long to make this copycat recipe! I'm calling it a Costa Vida copycat, Cafe Rio's rival, because it is less spicy and DEE-LICIOUS.
I honestly ate more sweet pork salads with tomatillo ranch in high school/college than one human should ever consume in a lifetime. And while I could probably do without their salad anytime soon, I will NEVER get sick of this dressing, or dip as I like to call it. ;)

1 (1 oz.) package ranch dressing seasoning
1. Place all the ingredients except the mayonnaise in a blender and blend until smooth. Whisk in the mayonnaise and store in the fridge in an airtight jar.
