Avocado Ranch Dressing with Dill

This delicious ranch dressing recipe features avocado for creaminess. Along with the buttermilk, mayonnaise, and sour cream, the avocado gives this ranch dressing recipe a wonderful texture and luxuriant finish. Garlic, onion, vinegar, parsley, salt, and dill work in harmony to flavor the creamy mixture and give it that unmistakable ranch flavor.

If you are a fan of traditional ranch dressing recipes then you might like to experiment with this avocado ranch dressing recipe. Be adventurous. You never know – you might find you like this one even better than classic ranch dressing. If you fancy spicing it up a little, add a teaspoon of green chili pesto or minced jalapenos. This is optional of course, since not everyone wants a spicy ranch dressing recipe, but it is good, especially if you are planning to serve this with steaks or chicken, or with chips.

You can use fresh garlic and onion if you prefer. If so, add half a minced garlic clove and a teaspoon of grated or finely chopped white onion instead of the powdered equivalents. The recipe is just as good with the powders though, and they are more convenient than having to prepare fresh garlic and onion. This ranch dressing still has a beautiful fresh flavor no matter which you use.

This delicious twist on the classic ranch dressing offers all the tangy creaminess you already know, along with a special avocado flavor. The color of the dressing will range from pale green to a darker hue depending how much avocado you choose to add (and you can alter the ratio as you like).

Simply combine the ingredients and your reward is a highly flavorful avocado ranch dressing.
