Cafe Rio Ranch Dressing Copycat Recipe & Grilled Chicken Sandwich

I’ve been loving this copycat Cafe Rio Ranch Dressing on everything lately!  I used to be lazy and just go buy it at Cafe Rio, but I’ve found that making it myself is cheaper, and is about half the calories. My mom is the queen of this stuff to be honest and she pointed me in the right direction when it came to making it. A couple weeks ago she sent me home with some of her dressing and I finally decided I needed to just make my own already. Today you’re going to get the recipe for yourself along with this easy grilled chicken sandwich that it’s delicious on!

Macros per ounce: .3P/2.8C/3.2FBefore I even knew you could buy a pint of Cafe Rio’s dressing, I used to save my leftovers when we went to put on my meals at home.  I love this dressing on salads (obviously), tacos, fried egg sandwiches, grilled chicken sandwiches, and plain old turkey sandwiches. What’s great is a little goes a long way, so I typically only use about half a serving (0.5 oz) on my sandwich.
