This Creamy Vegan Ranch is one of the easiest (and tastiest) dressings to make.
Ranch has always been one of my guilty pleasures – it just tastes so good on everything. So when I gave up dairy, I wanted to find a replacement that had the same flavors.
And while this is vegan, it still lands in the junk food section of vegan food – so don’t go dousing your salads with this 🙂
But even if you are on a plant based diet, you need to treat yo self from time to time.

Earlier this week I showed you a Simple Cilantro Lime Dressing and I told you I would be bringing you a yummy snack to use with it.
And here it is…
Loaded Baked Fries with Cilantro Lime Dressing.
I am drooling right now just writing this post, wishing I had more of these fries right now.
Fries are seasoned and tossed in oil before going into the oven. Once they are done, they are salted before being topped with cilantro lime dressing, additional cilantro and fresh jalapeño.
And that’s just the starting point.

Today we are keeping it short and sweet.
This Simple Cilantro Lime dressing takes no time to put together but it packs SO MUCH FLAVOR!
Cilantro brings such an amazing flavor to any dish (so long as you aren’t one of those people who think it tastes like soap…poor souls).
This dressing has citrus from the lime juice, a bright freshness from the cilantro…and, oh…did I mention the creaminess comes from avocado???
Any excuse to use avocado, right?

I’ve been having a bit of a wrap obsession lately and this Asian Chick’n Wrap with Spicy Tahini Sauce is definitely my new favorite.
Faux chicken strips are sautéed with teriyaki sauce until they have a nice caramelized and crispy crust and then they are wrapped up with spring salad mix, sweet peppers, jalapeño and a spicy tahini sauce.

Yesterday marked the official first day of pre-season football which means the time for game day snacks is here!
And we are going start the season off with something yummy – Guacamole Stuffed Potato Skins with Vegan Chipotle Mayo.
This is like having chips and guac, nachos and wings all in one.
(No there’s no chicken, but that chipotle mayo gives it a spicy kick similar to wings)
And while we’re on the topic, let’s talk about this mayo.

I have to say that my avocado obsession has gotten pretty intense lately.
I don’t know if a day goes by that I don’t have avocado. Whether it is on my toast, on a chip or in my salad, I just can’t get enough.
Avocados have a mild flavor but an amazing texture. Plus they have tons of health benefits. Lots of “good” fat + fiber + potassium.
Does anyone else have an avocado obsession or is it just me?
Well, if you do have a hankering for the good green stuff, then try upping your guac game with this Black Bean + Corn Guacamole.

This Spicy Red Pepper Hummus combines all of the things I love…spice and delicious dip. This is the perfect snack – healthy + homemade + tasty.
And I looovvvveeee hummus. There are so many options – garlic, roasted pine nut, chipotle, jalapeño – but for some reason I always seem to go back to the spicy red pepper. Especially when they have that chili oil in the center. So yummy.
