Creamy Avocado Ranch Dressing

A little change-up from the regular avocado breakfast toast is something I’ve been longing for for a while now. Sometimes it simply dawns on you that it’s time to try something new. And really, what better time than now to try your hand at all kinds of homemade salad dressings? This one in particular is all at once creamy, whipped, velvety and rich – the perfect complement to a light afternoon salad or summer soiree. I’m simply over the moon for this delectable treat! Paired with a flavourful chicken salad, it’ll leave you gratified for dayyyyys. It’s also great to store in the fridge or with your salad for a couple of hours to really get those flavours mingling. Happy wifey!

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning, you may already have most of these ingredients in your pantry and might even have some time on your hands, so I leave you with my creamy avocado salad dressing recipe.. 😉
