Avocado Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing


I made this dressing to go with this Mexican Grilled Salmon Salad but use it for all your favorite salads! It’s deliciously creamy, healthy and totally delicious! For a cilantro-lime version, swap out all of the herbs listed for 1/3 cup cilantro (no need to chop first. I just chopped those listed in this recipe for easier measuring) and 2 green onions, chopped into thirds.

    • Jaclyn: I’d maybe use some vegan mayo and dairy free yogurt. July 9, 2018 at 8:48pm Reply

  • Angela: I love this dressing. And my husband, who does not like avacados, loves it too. It makes a great topping for the grilled salmon in the salad recipe. November 20, 2017 at 7:40pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Glad you both liked it Angela! Thanks for your review! November 20, 2017 at 11:31pm Reply

  • Kerrie Crewe: I doubled the avocado, used about 2/3 cup Greek yoghurt and enough milk to make it the runnier consistence I needed and I LOVED it! I made a chopped salad from whatever we had in the crisper, which included red and green cabbages, wombok, carrots, onion and mushroom and then just added the dressing. I kept coming back for more!
