You’ll never want to have regular ranch dressing after trying this Avocado Ranch Salad Dressing!

Avocado Salad Dressing



So yesterday I made a salad.

That – in and of itself – is nothing earth shattering. I love salads, and love to eat them often.

But as I took my first bite of that salad, (which I will be posting next week), I realized that this salad dressing needs a post all to itself. The original plan was to post it all together, but you guys. You need this salad dressing regardless of the salad you are serving it on top of.

I was actually inspired to make this dressing by one of you. A few weeks back, when I reposted the Club Burger Sliders with Avocado Ranch Dressing, I had a commenter mention that they would use the dressing recipe as a variation for her salads. A light bulb went off in my head.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Deborah – how did you not put 2 and 2 together on this one? Well, the “dressing” from that recipe was used to top a hamburger. There were leftovers, and I used it as a dip. I should have naturally thought about using it as a salad dressing, but it never even crossed my mind. Until someone else mentioned it.

Avocado Ranch Salad Dressing Recipe

I changed up that recipe a bit, and thinned it out some to make it more pourable. It’s still quite thick, so if you want a thinner dressing, just add in some extra buttermilk. I was going to add in a splash of hot sauce as well, but totally forgot, so if you try that out you can take the credit. ;)

I’m telling you, though. Don’t blame me if you want to just eat this straight from the jar – forget about the salad. I’m sure this will become a staple dressing around here!

  1. This looks SO darn good! I make salads all the time but usually only top them with olive oil…which can get kind of old after a while. :( Would love to make this dressing as a nice change of pace!!

  2. I love a great homemade dressing, yum! This one definitely hits the tee. Looks amazing and somewhat healthy! :)

    looks wonderful!! We will be trying it this weekend.
    did you know that your regular mouth mason jars will fit on your blender base, saving you the steps of moving it from blender to jar and of washing said blender.
    I was SO excited when I learned that trick :)

    Is 11:00pm too late for a salad? Now that I’ve seen this dressing, I’m really wanting one! I’m making this for sure tomorrow- it’s calling me! :)

  6. Joanne says:

    I like this drinking the dressing straight from the jar idea. Sounds like a good life plan! :P

  7. Brandy says:

    I would suggest using homemade kefir in place of buttermilk, that would add some healthy probiotics!

    I’m especially loving the color of this dressing. It’s dreamy!
