This recipe has the flavor of traditional ranch dressing but is extra smooth and creamy, thanks to the avocado. Making dressing at home is a great alternative to store-bought because you know exactly what's inside. Dip crunchy veggies into the dressing for an easy afternoon snack.

Ingredients

Directions

Process the avocado, buttermilk, vinegar, scallions, garlic, chives, dill and parsley in a blender until smooth. Season with 1/2 teaspoon fine salt and a few grinds of pepper. Transfer to a medium bowl, cover with plastic wrap so that it sits directly on the dressing and refrigerate for 30 minutes up to 1 day before using.
