When Stephen took me out on our date to see Third Day in concert, we decided to stop in at Tumbleweed and eat dinner. I opted for a salad since I had eaten Mexican earlier that day. Since it was a Tex Mex salad, I chose their Cilantro Lime Dressing. First bite of that salad with THAT dressing on it was phenomenal. I knew right then and there I was going to have to recreate that dressing.
