Avocado Ranch

Avocado dressing to replace ranch!  Tested and Tasted. I strongly vouch for it.

This can also be used as a bread spread.  Perfect for a weekend breakfast.

1 large avocado
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup greek yogurt – I used 3 to 4 spoons. normal yogurt should also be fine.
1 teaspoon hot sauce – pepper powder is an alternate option.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil – I used 1 spoon.
2 garlic cloves – optional.
3/4 teaspoon salt.

Tastes better if the avocado is fully riped.  Smash the avocado, mix all other ingredients, mash well and enjoy!!!




For the uninitiated (I recently learned this word from IMC and love using it), here is an easy way to scoop Avacado.

Cut it in the middle, twist on both sides, pull apart, scoop with a spoon around the edges. If the avocado is fully ripe, it will just come off easily.
