Everything is better with avocado. There. I said it. Sandwiches are better with it. Tacos are certainly better with it. Same goes for nachos. Breakfast toast. And even, as it turns out, ranch dressing. This dressing is creamy, yet at the same time tastes much lighter than your traditional ranch dressing. And without a doubt, it will be my go to salad dressing this summer.
When it comes to dressing, I have always been a ranch kinda girl. Never blue cheese. Ever. Blue cheese is too strong. And…chunky. Oy. I am so not a fan.

And you also feel a little bit better about eating it because there isn’t a drop of mayonnaise in sight.
There is buttermilk though, which is why you will only feel a little bit better.
