Smarts: If you like your salads with extra dressing (or just want some more to serve with carrots for dipping on the side), this ranch dressing is a great one to double.

Meal prep this weekend meant this was quick and easy. And a nice, healthy twist on egg salad. Added extra sliced veggies and a salad on the side because I was nervous it wouldn't be enough.

I never knew that I could love egg salad. Like it? Sure. But this dressing and the crisp lettuce and cucumbers made it much more interesting to me. My sometimes egg-cautious kid also gobbled his up gleefully.

Not a fan of homemade ranch in general but really happy with this! Balsamic vinegar turned it an unfortunate color.

Like others have said, this came together quickly and was perfect for a Friday night, when we’re all tired! For the ranch dressing, I was generous with the cilantro and chives (prob about 1T of each for a 3 person serving size) and had a good result. I don’t love bottled ranch and this fresh ranch made me think that this is how ranch should taste! Forgot to add the sugar, but didn’t feel it was needed. I grilled chicken and chopped it up - rather than shred rotisserie chicken. I actually had leftover cilantro sauce from the recent Peruvian chicken that I used as a marinade. After reading the reviews, I added some sliced grape tomatoes and diced red onion to the wrap filling. Also used extra sharp cheddar cheese and cut it in small cubes rather than shred it. I gave all the ingredients to my toddler without sauce in a deconstructed version, with the ranch for him to dip on the side. He didn’t go for the ranch but was also tired and grumpy when we were eating.

I really didn't like this. The dressing was bland and the wraps were unsatisfying.
