Clean-eating, homemade ranch dressing made with buttermilk, Greek yogurt, and fresh avocado, this ranch dressing is so versatile, you could use it for salads, or as a dip at any shindig!
This is going to be the easiest recipe you’ll ever make from the bloggity blog. It’s so easy, I almost don’t want to share it, but I’ve had several requests for it, after yesterday’s Barbacoa post went live, and so here we are.
I love making this Avocado Ranch Dressing. I use thick buttermilk, and a bit of Greek yogurt, and it’s the perfect homemade ranch dressing, that’s low-carb, and clean. Not that most ranch dressing will have a lot of carbs, but making it from your own kitchen is so easy, and you know exactly what is in it, so why not?!
There are paleo, and whole30 ranch recipes out there, and I like a few of them, but for everyday, I feel good with this version. For extra healthy fats, I add a whole avocado into the food processor (you can also use a blender).
This dressing is good on just about any salad, but I’ve definitely also used it as a dip with sweet potato fries, and as the main dip for veggie trays. So really, use it on anything, and on all the things. You won’t regret it!
The base for this ranch recipe comes from the Gracious Pantry, but I’ve been making it for so long that it feels like my own at this point. Enjoy!
