One day, Ashley and I were cooking and we made a dish that we initially called our chicken bombs. Butttt… we didn’t think that name portrayed exactly what they were so we renamed them Bacon Ranch Chicken Tenders to be more exact. Once we made them, we realize that something was missing that could really complete the taste of the dish for us. Well, Voila… the Avocado Ranch Dip became a thing. Once we made it, we quickly realized how versatile it was and on how many different things we could use it on. One of the best parts is that it comes together in less than 5 minutes!

Can I use Avocado Ranch Dip as a salad dressing?

Absolutely! You can definitely use it as a salad dressing. The best way to add to a salad is to pour your desired amount on top of your salad in a container with a lid and give it a good shake- it will perfectly cover every bite! 🙂 If you want to thin it out a bit for your salad, you can mix in a little bit of olive oil and it will give the Avocado Ranch Dip a more traditional dressing consistency.

Is it OK to eat avocado everyday?

Eating an avocado a day is overall good for your health. Avocados are nutritious and they are a good source of monounsaturated fat, which can reduce your risk of heart disease.
