CHIPOTLE 'S salad dressing recipe but healthier

Home made Salad dressing 
I just can't get enough of this Salad dressing!!! I love the salad, and honestly I know there are so many toppings but I like to save my calories on some stuff like cheese, sour cream and corn.  I'd rather have this salad dressing and eat some chips and guacamole!! lots of it.  I always order the Chicken Salad: bed of Romaine Lettuce, brown rice, chicken, pico de gallo and top it with about 1/2 of the little container of the salad dressing.  It is greasy! but sooo good!! 

We don't really eat out a lot to avoid eating too much junk and specially because we have a very busy toddler that won't sit still for too long.  And this is why I always try to recreate my favorite meals from our favorite places, at home.
