How to Choose the Best Avocados for this Recipe

Avocados in this recipe are essential for their subtle buttery, nutty flavor, consistency, and color. If you aren’t used to buying avocados, choose ones that are slightly soft but not overly ripe. Try to buy only as many avocados as you need because they spoil quickly.

Since you blend the avocado in this recipe, this dressing is a great way to use up slightly oxidized or bruised avocados. Just be sure to cut away any bad parts of the fruit before adding it to the blender.

Three More Ways to Use Avocado Ranch Dressing

This stuff is so good, and you’ll probably wind up wanting to use it on just about anything. The good news is, you can!

These three recipes use Chick Fil A Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing as a main ingredient:

Avocado and Lime Chicken Salad

Regular chicken salad can be so dull. You can liven it up by substituting Avocado Ranch Lime Dressing for the mayonnaise and seasonings in your favorite chicken salad recipe.

South of the Border Eggs

Toast two corn tortillas and spread them with warmed refried beans. Cook two eggs in your favorite style and put them on top of the tortillas. Spoon the Avocado Lime Dressing on top of the eggs and add some spicy salsa. Serve with home fries.

The PAT Pasta Salad

Boil a pound of short pasta such as farfalle or penne. As the pasta boils, cook a pound of pancetta in a pan until it becomes crispy. Blot the pancetta with a paper towel.

After cooking the pasta, rinse with cold water and dump it in a large mixing bowl. Add the cooked pancetta, 2 cups of quartered grape tomatoes, and 1 cup of the avocado lime ranch dressing. Stir to combine.

Serve in a shallow bowl and top with avocado slices and fresh ground pepper.

Tips for Making and Storing Chick Fil A Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing

Try using prepared avocado mash. Usually, buying pre-mashed avocados isn’t a good idea, but it could make sense for this recipe. Just check the avocado mash to be sure it doesn’t contain any additional seasonings.

Keep the dressing in the fridge for up to three days. While the lime juice will help delay the avocado from oxidating, it will eventually turn brown.

Oxidized avocados will not hurt you, but they don’t look very appealing, so try to eat the dressing as soon as possible after making it.

    I thought the taste was spot on, the dressing is a little thicker, so I added just a bit of extra milk. Yum! Have you thought about doing their apple cider vinegar dressing?
