Vegan Dairy Free Avocado Ranch Dip

As promised, here’s another party food. I used this on New Year’s Eve as a dip for raw veggies. My youngest ate a ton of it on gluten free crackers. Sometimes, cream sauces or dips and dressings made from cashews can be a bit heavy, or rich at the very least. Even with the addition of the avocado, this is a very fresh tasting dip. It may be in my repertoire for when we go on our winter road trip this year. You can add a bit of liquid to it if you want it more like a salad dressing, or you can leave it thick for dipping or even spreading like a mayo on a sandwich. It’s tasty anyway you try it. Hope you like it.
