I'm not always on the ball when it comes to delivering seasonal recipes on time, but look what I have for you on this St. Patrick's Day! A creamy and delicious green dressing! I made this Avocado Ranch Dressing on Tuesday and the first thing I put it on was a yummy Veggie Sandwich. Today it will be poured over a Southwest Chicken Salad and I cannot wait to devour it. This dressing is SO good.



I really don't know why I don't make homemade dressings more often. They are so easy and it feels good knowing exactly what goes inside.

This Avocado Ranch Dressing would be great as a veggie dip, sandwich topping or salad dressing. For a thinner dressing, add more milk to the recipe, as it is fairly thick as written below.


Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day! Throw on something green to avoid those pinches.
