Looking for a tasty take on ranch dressing?
Try out this avocado based salad dressing that has that same creamy texture of ranch dressing, but full of healthy fats and vitamins.
Avocado Salad Dressing
1 large avocado
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves
3/4 teaspoon salt
You can use an immersion blender or regular blender. Make sure it is well mixed. It will have a slightly green colour when finished and a thicker consistency than ranch dressing from the store. If you want a more liquid dressing you can always add a little more olive oil or use less avocado.
Add to your favourite salad or may be try it out as a raw veggie dip. Either way, have some fun and experiment with it.
