Avocado Ranch Dressing

  • Author: Krista
  • Prep Time: 5 min
  • Cook Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6-10 1x
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix (buttermilk or regular packet)
  • 1 + 1/4 cup cold milk – I used whole milk
  • 1 large very ripe avocado

    Optional if you prefer a thick dressing also add:

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or plain greek yogurt


  1. In a bowl whisk together the ranch packet and milk. (If using the sour cream or greek yogurt, whisk in at this point)
  2. Remove skin and seed from the avocado and using a fork mash up the flesh until no large chunks are left. Add mashed avocado to the milk and ranch. Whisk well to combine.
  3. You’re ready to eat! Serve on tacos, burgers, dip in your french fries and of course salads!

Note: keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator  5-6 days. You may notice a slight discoloration on the top of the dressing, this does not affect the taste, just stir it in and you’re good to go!
