How do I make homemade avocado ranch dressing?

Making homemade avocado ranch dressing is simple. The base of the dressing is a basic ranch, with a few additions of cilantro, lime juice, and of course avocado.

We will make a base out of a combination of mayonnaise, sour cream and milk. A handful of fresh parsley and cilantro. I find it best to use more cilantro than parsley to up the southwestern taste of the dressing.

Some fresh or dried chives and dill. If using fresh herbs you will need to use more, dried herbs will pack more flavor, so you can use a smaller amount.

Garlic. Salt and pepper to taste. Some fresh lime juice to add a hint of acidity and a burst of fresh citrus flavor. And the avocado.
