Avocado Ranch

Sooo many failed attempts at this aioli sauce! It really is amazing with so many different dishes. This dish requires an open top blender or a processor for proper emulsion. Please pay really good attention to the instructions so you get the creamy wonderful results you desire! This recipe is challenging.


  1. 1 large avocado
  2. 1 cup neutral oil
  3. 2 egg yokes
  4. 1 clove garlic
  5. 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  6. 1 cup buttermilk
  7. 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  8. 1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
  9. 1/3 cup chopped tarragon
  10. 2 heavy pinches kosher salt
  11. 1 heavy pinch white pepper


  1. First, get everything measured, and ready to go:) better known as “Mise en place” in professional kitchens! French for everything in its proper place:)

  2. Into a blender, place the avocado, egg yolk, garlic, and balsamic vinegar. I suggest trying a quick burst on low speed, if it mixes easily, continue with the addition of the oil very slowly! If it doesn’t mix easily, stop the blender and using a spatula mashed the contents of the blender a bit. If you get a rolling product in the blender your doing well.

  3. ((The water is there to add whenever the blender begins stalling during the addition of the oil. Use the water sparingly, only enough to keep the mix rolling.)) While still blending on low, add buttermilk, herbs, salt, and pepper. In this order! Continue blending

  4. Once you have a creamy sauce, turn the blender off and taste. If more salt is needed, add salt and stir gently with a spoon. This recipe will try and separate if your not careful! If the aioli separates, throw it away and start again.

  5. When desired taste is reached, place into a proper container and refrigerate. Serve and enjoy on a number of things!
