I added in peanut butter and a splash of sriracha.

Outstanding dressing. I added peanut butter and something hot -- any of the Asian hot sauces would work, e.g. Sambal.

Delicious just as it is! Will definitely be making again, and again, and again... I might even add the peanut butter some of you are suggesting to change it up a bit. The whole family loved it.

This recipe is great. The only thing it's missing from the original is 1-2 tbsp. of peanut butter. Enjoy

The ingredient that is missing is the peanut! I bought a jar of this dressing from the Cheesecake Factory a month ago and on it reads: Peanut Cilantro Dressing.I made this recipe and added about tablespoon of peanut butter and that did it! Just add peanut butter to your taste until it's the way you like it. I LOVE this dressing. When I go to the Cheesecake Factory the Santa Fe salad is my first choice! I am addicted! I was thrilled to finally get the recipe. D.N. Boca Raton, FL

Delicious, but takes a while to make. Hopefully it lasts in the fridge for a couple of days.

COMMENT:
This recipe was a good base (though I omitted the parmesan cheese). Another reviewer mentioned missing ingredients... I found another copycat recipe and I fused it to this recipe. This recipe lacks peanut-- I added a teaspoon or so of peanut butter and a dash of soy sauce as well as a splash of sesame seed oil and brown sugar. If you tweek this recipe and add those ingredients you should find yourself a very close match.

REVIEW: recipe rating
It is fine as a dressing but it is not the same as the original. The flavor and texture is different than the original Cheesecake Factory Lime Dressing. This recipe is not as thick and it is missing something. I have tried several different things, but I can't figure out what is different. Wish someone figured it out.

This recipe was delicious. The dressing is the perfect combination of tastes. The dressing along with the mixture of salad ingredients makes this recipe, EXCELLENT!
