I've been sending these in my daughter's lunch. She's not interested in the apple slices, but I LOVE sandwiches with apple. They add such a nice twist. I just wrap them in saran wrap and the flavors all blend nicely by lunch time. I hadn't thought of using ranch dressing. She doesn't care for mustard or mayo, but is a big fan of ranch salad dressing, so this suited her perfectly. Thanks so much!
