Skinny Tomatillo Ranch

Who doesn’t love tomatillo? Who doesn’t love cilantro (besides my mother-in-law)? Who doesn’t love ranch? I am proud to present a simple skinny version of tomatillo dressing for those who crave a healthier ranch brimming with flavor!

(And for those friends who have ever lived in Utah, this just may kill that Cafe Rio craving until your next visit.) The truth is that I was thinking about how in two weeks when I visit Utah for Christmas, I’ll be eating Cafe Rio.  But for now! This will do!

I asked my mother-in-law for her recipe, a version of Cafe Rio’s dressing,  and she provided me with her list! I added the cilantro. 🙂









  • 1 1/2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tomatillo
  • 1 lime (juiced)
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1 cup Skim Milk
  • 1 Cup of mayonaise (Kraft MAYO with Olive Oil/ Reduced Fat.
  • 1 package of dry Hidden Valley Ranch




  1. In a bowl, mix mayonnaise, milk, and lime juice. (You can mix by hand because you’ll eventually add it to your magic bullet concoction.)
  2. Chop your jalepeno and tomatillo into medium-sized chunks.
  3. In your Magic Bullet, Blender, or Food Processor, add the jalepeno and tomatillo chunks, a handful of cilantro, and spoonful of garlic.
  4. Mix them until they are liquid.
  5. Add the mayo, milk, and lime batch to the mix and blend some more!
  6. Make sure your husband or friend tastes it for poisoning!
