That is how I have always felt about my Homemade Ranch Dressing, you want to drink it out of the jar. As much as I love it, it was time to mix things up!

I have added many ingredients to my Ranch Dressing over the years, chipotle, guacamole, even barbecue sauce. But I wasn’t in the mood for Mexican or tangy, just different…..Avocado!

How to make Avocado Ranch Dressing:

So I peeled a large avocado and placed it in a large bowl. I squeezed so lemon juice on top {about a Tablespoon} and mashed it until it was smooth{ish}…..

Place the Avocado Ranch Dressing in the refrigerator to chill before serving. You may need to add additional milk to thin if it appears to be too thick.

Store unused dressing in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. I have used mine 2 weeks later, well I think it was 2 weeks, I couldn’t remember when I made it and I didn’t drop dead so……
