Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing (easy recipe)

Fresh and tangy, this creamy avocado dressing is a fantastic twist on the popular ranch dressing. It comes together in minutes and can be adjusted to your taste. Use it as a dressing or as a dip. It keeps for a few days in the fridge. 

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1/4 cups


  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/2 cup natural or Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons ranch seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon of lime zest (it adds sharpness but can be omitted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Place all the ingredients into a blender jar or bowl if using an immersion blender. Or the bowl of the food processor. 
  2. Blend or process until the mixture is smooth. Taste and adjust the consistency and flavor of the dressing. Add more lime juice or water if you like it thinner. 
  3. Transfer the dressing to a clean glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  4. Use immediately or keep refrigerated for 3 days. 


  • Choose ripe avocados: they should be ripe but not overly soft. They should give slightly when gently squeezed. This will ensure a creamy texture and optimal flavor for your dressing.
  • Use fresh lime juice: it adds a bright and tangy flavor. You can replace this with lemon juice. It will still be tangy but not sweet.
  • Store properly: store leftover dressing in an airtight jar or container in the refrigerator. Avocados can brown quickly when exposed to air, so consider placing plastic wrap directly on the surface of the dressing, or a thin layer of olive oil, before sealing the container. This helps preserve the freshness of the dressing.
