What makes this Avocado Ranch Dip so awesome?

Multi-purpose. Try it as a sandwich spread or chili topper OMGYUM.
Few great recipes are completely original, and this is no different. The inspiration was thanks to a recent trip to the West coast. I took off My younger sis and I took off for a quick vacay, heading to southern Cali to visit my brother and brother-in-law.
Cue the sunshine, palm trees, coffeecoffeecoffee, and long walks around San Diego and Palm Springs. We walked miles and miles each day. I thought I was the avid pedestrian in my family, but turns out my brother, Bob, is a pedi superstar!
The food was legendary, both while out and about, and hanging at home. My brother-in-law, Clark, whipped up an avocado dip to go with his delish parmesan portobello fries. It was a perfect pairing, the creamy smooth avocado dip against the mild crunch of the baked mushroom ‘fries.’
Since we’re all avocado crazy here in my house, I resolved to create a similar version as soon as I shook off the jet lag. So, huge props to my multi-talented brother-in-law for the recipe inspo for this Avocado Ranch Dip!Avocado Ranch Dip. Elevate your dipping game!Click To Tweet
Avocado Ranch Dip
A creamy, mild dip for all your favorite dippers!
- 2 avocados
- 2 tablespoons lime juice about half a lime
- 1 1/2-2 tablespoons ranch dressing to taste
- 1/3 cup diced cucumber peeled and seeded
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
Remove the pit from the avocados and scoop the flesh into a small mixing bowl. Add the lime juice, ranch dressing, and salt.
Mash lightly with a potato masher or the back of the fork. Blend until creamy with an immersion blender.
Stir in the diced cucumber. Season with salt to taste.
Serve with a variety of dipping foods, like bell peppers, cucumbers, whole grain crackers, or tortilla chips. This dip is also a great topping for spicy chili!
- If you don't have an immersion blender, simply continue mashing with the back of the fork until the mixture is as smooth as you can make it.
