I’m pretty sure there are two types of people out there: lovers of ranch and ranch haters. Ranch dressing could be a major food group for me. I like ranch on salads, with pizza, as a vegetable dip, etc. Once I discovered this Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing, I’ve decided this is my new favorite version. Inspired by Chick-Fil-A’s salad dressing, this version only has a few ingredients and takes about 10 minutes or less to make.

Ingredients Needed to Make Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing

  • a ripe avocado
  • sour cream (or you can substitute greek yogurt)
  • buttermilk
  • fresh garlic
  • freshly squeezed lime juice
  • fresh green onion stalks

How to Make This Avocado Lime Ranch Sauce

Making homemade salad dressing is pretty easy and for this recipe, your food processor does most of the work for you! Once you prep all of your ingredients, all you have to do is throw them in the food processor or blender and blend them together. You can decide the consistency you want your avocado lime ranch dressing to be, so stop earlier if you want a thicker sauce or continue to process for a smoother finish.

What to Use this Chick Fil A Copy Cat Dressing For

  • The original reason for making this recipe was for a salad dressing of course!
  • Use as a dipping sauce for chips, veggies or my Air Fryer Zucchini Chips!
  • This ranch dressing makes a great sauce for grilled steak or chicken.
  • Try using this avocado lime sauce instead of mayonnaise and herbs the next time you make egg salad or chicken salad.

Tools to Make Homemade Ranch Dressing

My favorite food processor for making this ranch dressing is my mini KitchenAid food processor. It’s small and compact so it doesn’t take up a lot of space and it’s the perfect size for this recipe!

I’ve also recently discovered a silicone blender spatula and I use it for everything! It’s long and thin and gets all of those delicious bits you couldn’t reach before.
