Rated 5 out of 5 by pella254 from great substitute! I loved the avocado ranch but I also like things spicy, so I added about 2 T ranch spice also, but low fat buttermilk and no mayo was great! this is a great substitute for ranch dressing! Going in my keep pile!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CKay from Too much garlic and onion So quick and easy, and good flavor, but two cloves of garlic and two tablespoons of onion overpower the other flavors. Will try again with half the amounts of garlic and onion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by angiesv from Good way to use ripe avocados This dressing is good as written, but I thought it needed some acid, so I added a couple of tablespoons of white wine vinegar. I plan to use it on a side salad to accompany broccoli-cheddar soup (also made in the Vitamix).

Rated 5 out of 5 by LouieLouie from Flavor-filled and tasty I made this today and love it. It’s creamy yet light. I did make some adjustments - no onions (because of gut issues), full-fat buttermilk as that’s what I had on hand, and some fresh kale to replace the parsley. I also reduced the amount of water. Like another reviewer, I added some acid, about 3 tbsps. of apple cider vinegar. It still came out wonderfully.

Rated 1 out of 5 by billnycchef from Not low fat Be careful with the search criterion. Sadly this is "not" a low fat recipe. Even if it is a healthy type of fat, avocados are still very high in fat and not considered a low fat food.
