Homemade avocado ranch dressing that’s unbelievably creamy, vegan and gluten-free! Perfect for dressing any type of salad or as a dip for veggies.
The 10 Day Salad Challenge is going strong and I’m continuing the salad theme with a recipe for healthy, homemade avocado ranch dressing.
To be honest, ranch has never been my dressing of choice. Catalina (or French) was my absolute favorite growing up and to this day I still lean toward sweeter dressings. That said, I do love a savory dressing every once in a while and I know that pretty much everyone adores ranch so this little recipe had to happen.
I have to admit that while doing recipe testing for this post I realized that I’m more of a ranch fan than I originally thought. Maybe my tastebuds have changed or maybe it’s because this homemade version tastes waaaay better than the store-bought ranch I remember from childhood. Either way, I’m not mad about it.
Most ranch dressings start with a base of mayo, sour cream and buttermilk, but I knew from the get-go that I wanted to skip those things. I opted for Almond Breeze almondmilk with lemon juice to replace the buttermilk, along with avocado and olive oil to replace the mayo and sour cream.
The result is a delicious, herby dressing that’s just as creamy, if not creamier than regular ranch. It’s seriously the best!
