Avocado Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing
This interesting twist on a classic avocado Greek yogurt ranch dressing will dress up your usual ranch dressing and make you want to repeat this recipe time and again.
Yogurt is an interesting food. It is made from dairy, but unlike milk, people who are lactose intolerant can almost always eat yogurt. That is because of the bacteria that are in the yogurt, which supports the digestive process. Greek yogurt is thicker than the standard yogurt and higher in protein. It is important to read the labels when you buy yogurt to ensure that you are getting ingredients that you want. Plenty of yogurt contains added sugar or other ingredients like gelatin rather than just milk and the bacteria to turn milk into yogurt.
This recipe uses Greek yogurt to create a spicy Mexican dressing or dip. That makes this recipe a real culture cross. Lime is blended in to the dressing as well as a series of spices to give it a bit of heat.
All of the ingredients can just be tossed into the food processor and blended. There is no need to pre-chop anything. Avocado adds a wonderful smooth and creamy flavor as well as a pale green coloring that makes this dressing especially attractive.
The recipe also suggests alternatives with cilantro and other ingredients if you want a slightly different take on the flavors. Either way, this dressing will be a delicious accompaniment to your favorite salad or as a dip with your favorite chips.
It is an economical, quick and easy dressing to make. Little hands can help by test tasting as you blend the spices in the dressing.
