BLT Salad with Avocado Ranch Dressing



This salad was so yummy and refreshing. Also quick and easy. You can pretty much put what you want in it. We love BLTs in this house and we love to add cheddar and avocado to them so I adjusted the salad to my taste. And the dressing...OH SO YUMMY!

Romaine Lettuce
Tomato
Bacon
Avocado
Cheese
Croutons
or whatever else you like

Salad Dressing: Recipe below




Avocado Ranch Dressing:
1 whole avocado
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup sour cream
1 Tbl buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp white vinegar
1/8 tsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp dried dill weed
1/8 tsp onion powder
1 garlic clove, minced

Mash the avocado in a bowl. Add the mayo, sour cream, buttermilk and vinegar. Add the parsley, dill weed, onion powder and garlic. Chill in fridge until ready to serve.
If your dressing is to thick you can add more vinegar or buttermilk to your liking.

Your dressing looks soooo creamy. I want to get a spoon and eat it. I want all the bacon to go with it. Thanks for your comment and I'm glad I visited your site--I love it already. Did I spy a pierogi casserole?? I'll be back.

I love me a blt and in a salad with avocado dressing. Yummy. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

To follow my blog. I'm kind of old fashioned at the moment so while I have followers I don't display it on my blog. But you can follow me. If you go to your dashboard and under reading list, look at blogs you're following and then click "add." That should do it!

That dressing looks heavenly...in addition to the salad, I could see putting that on sandwiches, using it as dip, etc. Love the flavors! Yum!
