Cafe Rio Tomatillo Ranch Dressing Alternative

caferio

Calling all Cafe Rio Lovers!

I have always been on the search for a store bought version of Cafe Rio’s Tomatillo Ranch. Everytime I eat at Cafe Rio I always say, “I could eat these salads everyday!” Am I right?! Now I really can! I found this Cilantro Avocado dressing and had to put it to the test. Yes, I could make a homemade version that is all over Pinterest, BUT when you see the nutrition label of this Bolthouse Farms Cilantro Avocado, it may make you think twice!


They are very similar in flavor, probably because of the cilantro. If you weren’t tasting them side by side you’d probably think they had the same taste. The first time I tasted the Bolthouse dressing I thought it tasted exactly like Cafe Rio. But later side by side there is a slight difference, Bolthouse Cilantro Avocado is more tangy I think because it’s yogurt based. I honestly can’t choose which one I like best because each tastes great in my opinion.

You can find this dressing in the fresh produce aisles, usually next to the lettuce/salad bags. I found mine at Albertsons grocery store for just under $4.00.

Enjoy those salads!
