Avocado Ranch Dressing Recipe

Avocado ranch dressing recipe - Dr. Axe

Store-bought dressings and condiments are often packed with unhealthy ingredients and preservatives — and they can be quite expensive, too. That’s why I prefer making my own, like this Avocado Ranch Dressing. It’s a tasty twist on traditional ranch dressings.  Using goat milk kefir and benefit-rich avocados makes this dressing super creamy and packs it with healthy fats and probiotics.

Not only is this avocado ranch dressing delicious atop salads, it’s wonderful used as a dipping sauce for my gluten-free Buffalo Chicken Tenders or raw veggies, as a spread in sandwiches and wraps, or as a topper for my Sweet Potato Tacos. Once you see how easy it is to prepare, you’ll never purchase dressing again!

Also, keep in mind that this recipe works well for keto dieters (only 3 net carbs per serving), Paleo enthusiasts, gluten-free eaters and more.
