Creamy Cilantro-Lime Ranch Dressing

1 cup mayo (I used the healthier mayo with olive oil as ingredient)
1/2 cup milk (I used non-fat)
1 lime, juiced (about 2 tablespoons lime juice)
1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix (ignore directions on packet)
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro (remove the stems)
1/4 cup green salsa (I used Herdez brand)

Put mayo, milk, lime juice and ranch packet in blender and mix.  Add cilantro, garlic and salsa and blend more.  Refrigerate for a while before serving so that it thickens.  Not sure how long this dressing will last because it disappears quickly in our house!  This is a knock off of a dressing they use at Cafe Rio and is delicious on a Mexican salad or a Layered Salad (or any salad really!).
