Tuesday Thyme: Avocado Ranch Salad Wraps

I thought I was doing something wrong because this recipe seemed too easy. We didn't have white cheddar cheese, so I just used the regular stuff. Most important to me is how does it taste leftover. This was definitely a winner the first, second, and third times! I also didn't feel like a fatty which is always a plus. If you aren't really a sauce person, just decrease the amount of ranch dressing in the recipe. We had it for dinner but I think it would be great for a picnic lunch. Alex enjoyed everything but the lettuce, and I think that was because he can't chew it yet. This recipe comes highly recommended from our little family to yours!
