This is a FANTASTIC dip for those of you that absolutely adore avocados, like me : ) I can never get enough guacamole whenever somebody serves it. I swear I could eat a whole bowl full… this particular dip is similar to guacamole since it’s a mashed avocado dip, but the flavors are totally different and it’s about a thousand times simpler to throw together. This little green beauty is Avocado Ranch Dip!
Make sure that your avocado’s are ripe so they will be soft enough to mash with a fork! Here’s a little avocado tip- have you ever had little gross strings in your avocado flesh? Well to prevent that from happening all you need to do is store it in the refrigerator to ripen. I used to store them on the counter so it would speed up the ripening process, but I swear, 2 out of 3 times I would get strings choking out the inside of my guacamole. Gross. I found something online giving that tip to prevent it and I’ve done it ever since and never again had strings! The only issue with that is the slow ripening. Most people buy their avocado’s right before they need them so they want them ripe now, not 6 days later…. either way, I just thought that I would throw that tip at you.
I swear this couldn’t be easier to throw together. Just mash together two avocados, dump in about 2 Tb of a ranch dressing packet, and add a few splashes of buttermilk (or to your desired consistency). SO easy!! I also think that it would be great with another extra avocado, the whole ranch packet and a few spoonfuls of sour cream! A little bit creamier and more of a ranch flavor. It’s really kind of a “let’s see where this takes me” kind of dip. Very similar to the ranch dressing I posted about. You can adapt it to your own tastes just by adding a few splashes of hot sauce or even some grated cheese. Whatever you’re in the mood for really.
I served this as a dip with some carrot sticks. It would be great with any vegetable or even a chip. It would also make a wonderful dressing. Just add a few more splashes of buttermilk and you’ve got yourself some avocado ranch dressing!
