MORE KETO & LOW CARB SAUCE RECIPES



This recipe has been sitting in my draft folder for SO long!

Growing up in Southern California, avocados were pretty much in their own food group for me and I ate them on almost a daily basis.

No joke, I could make a meal of just an avocado sprinkled with some salt and a drizzle of lime juice and be a happy camper.

But I really loved using them to hold what you might typically put between two slices of bread.

Tuna salad, chicken salad, shrimp salad, you name it, if it was a salad-y type of sandwich spread it went into a halved avocado, then into my face!

Fast forward to a couple years ago and your girl getting the devastating news that she is allergic to avocado now!

I didn't want to believe it but, after two trips the ER, it was pretty much obvi that avocados were a thing of the past for me 😭

So this recipe sat in my draft folder because I just couldn't face it. 

Then I realized that I was being pretty selfish. Just because I can't enjoy it anymore, doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy it. 

Actually, I think you enjoying it will make me feel much better.

Can I live vicariously through you as you nosh on this, please?

FAQS ABOUT


Why do I have to mix the lemon juice with the heavy cream? A lot of ranch dressing recipes call for buttermilk. If you use the mix, it has buttermilk powder in it. But buttermilk is higher in carbs, twice as many as heavy whipping cream. I had used the lemon juice trick with regular milk in the past to avoid buying buttermilk for a recipe and then having leftover buttermilk do to waste so I decided to just apply that technique to HWC. 

Can I use dried herbs instead of fresh in this? I always use fresh herbs, I just prefer the flavor they bring. But, the general rule of thumb when substituting dried herbs for fresh is 1 teaspoon of dried for each tablespoon of fresh. 

How do I store Avocado Ranch Dressing and Dip? You want to store any leftovers in an airtight container in your fridge. As with any avocado-based dip or sauce, it can brown, so you can press a piece of plastic wrap down onto the surface of the dip to avoid that happening. It will keep for about 3 to 4 days.
