Dairy Free Avocado Ranch Dressing

Dairy Free Avocado Ranch Dressing – Okay, so overload on the dairy free recipes? Probably but that’s what it is around here and I’m cool with that. We’ve embraced it and found some really great dairy free recipes that will probably stick around long past the time that we have to actually be free of dairy.

With that being said, this is definitely one of those that will stick around. It’s creamy and delicious, full of that tangy ranch flavor that I sometimes just have to have. Normally I’m fine with a vinaigrette dressing for salads but there are times when that just won’t do. Here you combine mayo with avocado and traditional ranch dressing spices and come out with something that is so full of flavor (and it doesn’t taste like mayo for all you mayo haters) that you won’t even know that it’s dairy free.

The dressing might seem really thick after you are finished blending it but I promise that it will thin out as it chills. You can always add a little liquid (almond or regular milk) after it chills if it’s too thick for your liking.
