Five ingredients, simple to throw together, and made with fresh ingredients! This Avocado Ranch Dip is a fantastic, light addition to tacos, salad, and is perfect as a dip for veggies, chips and our Bacon Ranch Chicken Tenders. Whether you like your dips smooth or chunky, that variation is totally up to you.
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.
Ingredients for Avocado Ranch Dip:

How to make Avocado Ranch Dip:
Take both avocados and slice length-wise. Take out pit. Spoon contents of both into a bowl.
Wash and dice the cilantro into small pieces. Add to the bowl.
Next, measure out the ranch dressing and add to the mixing bowl.
Lastly, add taco seasoning and the juice of two limes to all other ingredients.
With an immersion blender or regular blender, mix until all ingredients are combined. For a smoother texture, blend until all avocado chunks are gone.
In our house, we are quick to grab the ranch to throw on just about anything. With this specific dip, we wanted to dress up the ranch, make it thicker, and give it a lot more personality. It has a rich consistency and gives a great custom taste to those cut vegetables trays or on top of fish tacos. When you are feeling like dressing up that next tray of goodies, whip this baby up in five minutes or less!
