Guacamole Ranch Dressing - Fresh and Tasty!
As the dressing has fresh tomatoes & avocado in it, you will find it a great dressing for simple salads or grilled meats, as I've shown in these images. The chicken was simply cooked with a spice rub. After these pictures, the remaining dressing was used on a burrito, as well as a dip for carrot sticks and pita chips.
This is a low carb ranch dressing too, with just 2 net carbs per serving.

How to Make Guacamole Ranch
This recipe is easy to make. Printable recipe card is below with adjustable ingredient measures by servings.
Ingredients for the Dressing
Here is all you need to make the salad dressing/dip.
- Hass avocado
- low fat buttermilk*
- dry dill
- onion powder
- Kosher salt
- fresh garlic
- fresh lime juice
- olive oil
- fresh tomato
- pickled jalapeno
- fresh cilantro
*If you can't find fresh buttermilk in your area add a tablespoon of vinegar to regular lowfat milk, or mix up a batch of my homemade dry Ranch seasoning.
Simply add everything except the jalapeno and cilantro into a blender and pulse until smooth.
Then add the last two ingredients and pulse a couple times to chop.
Store the Guacamole Ranch Dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator, for up to 3-4 days.
Due to lack of preservatives, leftovers should be tossed after that.

I know it's crazy, probably, but I don't care for ranch dressing, but I love guacamole. So maybe this is a way I'd like ranch dressing? 🙂

Ranch dressing is very tasty. It is one of my favorites. This recipe seems to be really easy and the photo looks very appetizing. I guess that the thing that you have added avocado is really creative!
Sounds delish! Anything that combines ranch and guacamole is for me!
Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says
Love the combination of ingredients in the salad and in the dressing!
This sounds really good. The only way I currently like avocado is in smoothies so I'll have to try this.
Ty @ Mama of 3 Munchkins says
Oh my! That looks very tasty!
I have so many avocados - have to make this 🙂
I think guacamole and ranch were meant to be together. Love your recipe!
This looks and sounds so good. I would love this over my sauteed chicken and kale I think.
This sounds so flavorful and wonderful. We already love Ranch, but this sounds even better. 🙂
That sounds really good!
Shell Feis says
As a ranch junkie, you had me with the addition of the guacamole, but then to make it lower calorie, too? Sold!
That dressing looks so good! I am not much of a salad person, but I could be swayed with a dressing like that!
Crystal @ Simply Being Mommy.com says
That looks delicious. I'd love to try it with my carrot sticks.
Rachel @ Following In My Shoes says
My daughter adores guac and ranch ... I bet she'd adore this in her lunches!
