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.

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.

- The original reason for making this recipe was for a salad dressing of course!

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.
