This sauce is great! I don't think it tastes like ranch at all, more like creamy avocado deliciousness. I found myself wanting to just eat it with a spoon! The egg rolls were easy to make and I had everything I needed already in the pantry. I added some jalapenos to spice it up a bit, and enjoyed having an appetizer dinner. Plan on making this sauce for other things! Made for Best of 2012 tag game!
YUM! I haven't had SW egg rolls in a very long time, so I was eager to try this healthy, vegetarian version... These did not disappoint at all. I was really frustrated rolling the egg rolls at first and simply could not pull them off right, but after a while I just reached some sort of zen mode and quickly ended up with two dozen perfect-looking egg rolls. Don't know how I did it :P I doubled the amount of cumin and added two chopped serranos to the filling, and I skipped the avocado ranch entirely and served these with homemade pico de gallo instead. I did not miss the ranch at all, and thought the pico was the perfect accompaniment. Thanks for sharing this recipe! [Reviewed for BEST OF 2012]
