Al Fresco

I mentioned the other day that I came up with a new salad dressing recipe, but I wanted to wait to tell you about it until I could take a picture. I am proud to present to you Ranch Dressing with Avocado and Lemon... or Avocado Lemon Ranch- whichever you prefer.

I usually use a buttermilk ranch dressing mix and follow the directions, and then I just mash up an avocado and mix in some lemon juice and add that. I bought a ranch dressing mix, but somehow it didn't make it home with us from the store yesterday. Luckily I found a recipe for ranch dressing made from scratch and just added the avocado to that.

Avocado Lemon Ranch

1 c buttermilk
1 1/4 c mayo
1/2 tsp garlic, minced
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp parsley
1/2 T minced onions
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp salt
juice of half of lemon
1 avocado, mashed

Mix the first eight ingredients together, then add avocado mixed with lemon juice.

Erin's chicken and spinach stuffed shells and homemade oreos. Erin made these for us after Sophie was born and I've been dying to have them again ever since.

YUM! What a delicious dinner. My mouth is watering from those cookies. They look so soft and moist.... Mmmm! And I'm totally going to have to try the ranch dressing with avocado and lemon!

You make it looks so good, and I don't even like avacados! I had to stop making those cookies; I just couldn't stop eating them that I made myself sick everytime!

You're the one who got me hooked, Brenda! Ever since that Valentine's Day! :)

I've got to try that dressing, sounds super smooth and creamy/tangy all in one!! We must get together someday to cook and eat eachother's food.
