Who doesn't LOVE ranch dressing? As a kid (and even as an adult pre-Keto) I used to eat ranch with EVERYTHING—chicken wings, french fries, pizza. My youngest is a ketchup lover and me, ranch all the way baby! ha!
Now that we are keto and I understand the core concepts of this lifestyle, normal ranch dressing (like Hidden Valley) is LOADED with inflammation-causing vegetable oils (like soybean and canola). These oils are NOT keto-friendly because they are all highly processed and typically come from NON-GMO and non-organic facilities. They disrupt the omega-6 and omega-3 balance in our bodies and ultimately contribute to chronic inflammation. (Think about it. If your body is under constant duress from inflammation, our immune systems are constantly being triggered, on override; leading us vulnerable to disease and chronic sickness). Ok more on this in a separate blog post.
Enter this EASY, make-your-own in 5 minutes ranch dressing keto recipe. It's quite simple, with ingredients I already have in my pantry. What makes this Keto? I use may that is already full of healthy fats from avocado oil. I love that I can control the ingredients and choose the best quality items. It keeps well in the fridge in a airtight container.
1 cup avocado mayo (we love Sir Kensington's brand)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon dried garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon dried chives (optional)
1 teaspoon avocado oil
1/2 lime, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
