One of my very favorite salad dressings I’ve ever had at a restaurant is hands-down the Honey Chipotle dressing from Chipotle. I love Chipotle’s burritos but their salad dressing is probably my favorite part. I love it poured over their bowls, in their burritos and on their salads. It’s SO delicious and I’m loving trying this dressing on meat, salads, as a dip, etc. Pretty much it’s amazing on anything! It’s also not a fussy dressing. Simple ingredients but combined together make this Chipotle Copycat Salad Dressing my new fave!
In the below recipe I used this salad dressing as a marinade for a pork tenderloin. I used half of the dressing to marinate the meat and the other half to drizzle on top afterwards. I served this pork with a rice pilaf and it was incredible!
In this recipe I used this dressing for a simple salad with diced chicken, corn, black beans, cheese, tomatoes, etc. Nothing fancy again but a super delicious, healthy & yummy dinner.
The sky’s the limit on how you can use this dressing. Hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
