You better love avocados, because the flavor is predominant. I thought it was a little thick...I should have thinned out a little with more milk. It's definitely a nice and different twist on ranch dressing...worth a try!

Was in search of something similar to the avocado ranch dressing Applebees used to have (and recently discontinued locally). I think this one is better! I did have to add sea salt to taste - needed it in my opinion.

Good start. I reduced the ranch to 1/2 c, added 1/4c sour cream, and upped the hot sauce to 1 T. If you like it thinner, you could add more milk.
