Keto Cafe Rio Copycat Salad Dressing
What makes this keto tomatillo dressing so special is that it’s a copycat recipe of the same one used at the popular restaurant, Cafe Rio. If you’ve never been there, it’s one of those build-your-own Mexican salad or burrito places that just has so much amazing flavor in every dish.
Cafe Rio’s creamy tomatillo ranch dressing is no exception, with its tangy, lemony tomatillos, fresh cilantro, creamy avocado, and freshly squeezed lime.

FAQs for Keto Tomatillo Dressing
Can I use canned tomatillos?
I don’t recommend this. For some recipes, ingredients are meant to be used fresh, and this salad dressing is definitely one of those.
I’ve never used fresh tomatillos before. How do I prepare them?
Tomatillos are amazing little fruits (yes, just like their relative tomatoes, tomatillos are considered fruit!). They’re beautiful, really. They look like a green tomato with a lovely, paper-lantern-like husk on the outside. Just peel off the husk with your hands, and wash the stickiness off the tomatillo’s skin (this is normal!). Then throw those babies into the blender!
