This Homemade Avocado Lime Ranch is unbelievably delicious! Inspired by a salad dressing at Chick-fil-A that I enjoy, but made better using fresh ingredients. I serve this avocado-lime ranch dressing as a salad dressing, as a dip or drizzled over tacos. Incredibly versatile and insanely delicious.
Homemade vs Store Bought Prepared Dressing
Homemade Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing is Quick and Packed with Flavor
- You really don’t need high-end equipment to make this salad dressing. A stand blender or food processor is ideal and can whip-up the ingredients with very little effort in a matter of minutes.
- For the most robust flavor, store it tightly sealed in the refrigerator for several hours prior to serving to allow the flavors to fully combine and come to life. It’s like a fiesta in a jar.
- This dressing can be made up to 3 days in advance of serving. It will keep for up to 5 days, possibly even longer but, due to the oxidation of the fresh avocado it will not keep it’s bright green color. Use it within 3-5 days for the best results.
