Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing

The tangy, ranch flavor in this avocado lime ranch dressing that’s a copycat of the Chick-fil-A version with all fresh ingredients. 

Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing
The avocado lime ranch dressing is a major staple at Chick-fil-A. They have customers just waiting to buy a bottle. Yet, they don’t seem it. No problem because this is a great copycat version using fresh ingredients with their twist of a creamy avocado dressing with a hint of lime juice providing a refreshing flavor and tang.

Does Chick-Fil-A Sell Their Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing

No, they do not! They sell their sauce but when it comes to their dressing you can only purchase it by the pack in the restaurant. That is the reason this recipe was created to make getting that great lime ranch flavor right at home in abundance while super fresh. It can be made in less that 10 minutes.

Is Avocado Lime Ranch Keto

Yes it is! One of the main reasons I was drawn to this recipe is because I primarily focus on and live a keto lifestyle. I do use carbs here and there but I have no worries in this recipe. I give the option for sour cream instead of using greek yogurt.

How To Store

You need to refrigerate this dressing. It’s not shelf stable like the one from the restaurant because there are fresh ingredients used. The dressing will last 3-4 days depending on the ripeness of the avocado. Store in some sort of storage container like tubberware or in a jar as pictured.

How To Make Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing

To start, you’ll need a whole avocado. Around the medium to small size if possible. Organic avocados you’ll find that size but in the conventional there can be some fairly large ones. To add, I used whole milk greek yogurt. As mentioned earlier you can swap this one to one with sour cream. Both are delicious.

Next, you will need a blender, food processor or hand mixer.

Add in garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed, parsley, salt and pepper then mix everything together. Now, squeeze in a whole lime. Once everything is smooth give it a taste. If salted perfectly, serve or place in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

While in the refrigerator the avocado dressing will thicken up and the flavors will marinate together more.

Store in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days. The avocado is the quickest ingredient to go bad and that’s about how long they last after being cut.

Notes

Greek Yogurt Or Sour Cream Dressing

In this recipe I used both. I wanted to test them both that way you'll have the best flavor. For the keto diet, stick with the sour cream as yogurt contains a few carbs if you're worried. The whole milk greek yogurt I used gave a better flavor than the sour cream in my opinion. The creaminess was the same but the yogurt gave the dressing a extra boost in flavor the sour cream version lacked. Yet, I worked it out and you can swap either or 1:1.

Dried Or Fresh Herbs

I personally used dried herbs in this recipe. Dry herbs help with overall speed in making the recipe easier for beginner cooks. Now, would I be against fresh herbs? Of course not! If you have the time I say add them in fresh and experiment with it. I recommend using around the same amount since fresh herbs have an earthier flavor that stands out over dry.
