As a Registered Dietitian, I’m a firm believer that when it comes to making salads exciting, it’s all about the dressing.

This avocado lime ranch salad dressing is the answer to your creamy, zesty, and herby salad dressing dreams! It’s similar to my avocado Greek yogurt dip, but has a runnier consistency perfect for drizzling.

It’s super easy to make – just toss all the ingredients into a food processor and blend it all up until smooth.

Then you can use it as a sauce or dressing for just about anything – salads, grain bowls, tacos, sandwiches, and more.

And if you’re looking for even more healthy homemade sauces and dressings, give my avocado cilantro lime dressing, creamy Greek yogurt salad dressing, taco salad dressing, feta dill dressing, lemon tahini sauce, and sesame ginger miso dressing a try!

This recipe is vegetarian, gluten free, and makes about 2 cups of dressing.

Ingredients

Here are all the ingredients you need to make this dressing:

  • Avocado: Make sure you are using ripe avocado for this recipe to ensure maximum creaminess.
  • Plain Greek yogurt: Protein-packed Greek yogurt is a nutritious replacement for mayonnaise or sour cream when making creamy dressings. I used full fat Greek yogurt but you can use whatever type of have on hand. And if you just have regular yogurt, you can make your own Greek yogurt with my shortcut recipe!
  • Lime: Avocado and lime are always a delicious flavor pairing, and freshly squeezed lime juice is zippy and zesty in this dressing.
  • Fresh dill, parsley, and chives: Fresh herby flavor is a requirement for ranch dressing!
  • Garlic powder and onion powder: Garlic and onion provide even more ranch inspired flavor to this dressing.
  • Salt: A generous pinch of salt enhances all the flavors in this dressing.
  • Water: Water thins out this dressing so it is runny enough to drizzle over everything. Feel free to use less or more water, depending on how thick you want the dressing to be.

Kitchen equipment needed

  • Food processor
  • Cutting board
  • Chef’s knife, 6 or 8 inch
  • Measuring cups and spoons

If you do not have a food processor, you should be able to make this dressing in a blender just fine!
