Homemade Avocado Ranch

Homemade Avocado Ranch

Here’s a fact for you:  Texans love ranch.  And since I’m a Texan I think I would know.

I just figured that it was a United States thing…I mean, who in their right mind wouldn’t eat ranch on french fries, pizza, mozzarella sticks, and other varied fabulously fried foods?

Then I moved to Colorado.  And got the weirdest stares when I asked for ranch on the side with my nachos and pizza.  You would have thought I’d turned purple and farted out loud.

Yes, I just said “farted” on the blog.  What of it?


  • 3-4 very ripe avocados, pit removed and flesh scooped out
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (I prefer using Greek yogurt to sour cream most of the time, although I would say that in this recipe they are interchangeable.  Just use what you have!)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2-3 cloves fresh garlic, minced very finely or grated on a microplane
  • 1 bunch chives (about 1/4 cup chopped)
  • 1 bunch parsley (about 1/4 cup chopped)
  • 3-4 sprigs fresh dill (about 1 Tbsp chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1-2 Tbsp pickle juice (just trust me…you want this)
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
