What better way to enjoy a salad than to make your own salad dressing. So many dressings on the market are full of pro-inflammatory causing ingredients like vegetable oils, fillers and preservatives that are mean to extend the shelf life of a product. But in doing so these ingredients cause inflammation in our bodies wreaking havoc on our metabolic pathways and eventually causing imbalance, malfunction and disease.
I don't often make salad dressings but when I do a certain contentment arises with the thought that I am able to control the ingredients I use and uphold the quality I hold in such high regard.
Don't get scared by salad dressings. They are actually quite easy and fun to make. Avocado ranch is a perfect way to increase your healthy fat consumption. Make this ahead of time and keep a jar in the fridge and you'll be all set for any salad moment.
Empty salad dressing squeeze bottle (for storage)
1 cup avocado mayo (we love Sir Kensington's brand)
1 cup unsweetened Greek yogurt (we like Maple Hill brand or Straus Brand)

1/2 large avocado
1 tablespoon cilantro

1/2 teaspoon dried garlic powder
