Creamy Tomatillo Ranch Dip


creamy tomatillo ranch tomatillo dip by myheartbeets.comAfter filling myself up on delicious roasted salsa verde, I decided that I wanted to do something different with my remaining tomatillos. After perusing pinterest for 10 minutes (okay, an hour), I saw the different things that people were making with tomatillos (soup, dressing, pico de gallo). I saw a lot of creamy tomatillo ranch dressing recipes – unfortunately, they were all made with pre-made ranch seasoning (think Hidden Valley), buttermilk, mayo – things that I can’t eat. So, I improvised with the few real food ingredients that I had on hand and came up with this delicious creamy tomatillo ranch dip.

creamy tomatillo ranch dip by myheartbeets.comMy recipe is simple and it’s also bursting with flavor. First, I roasted several ingredients (tomatillos, garlic, onion, jalapeno) to help concentrate the flavors. I used this same method in my salsa verde recipe. Then, I blended the roasted vegetables with avocado, apple cider vinegar, coconut milk and spices. The end result = a thick and creamy dip, perfect for carrot sticks, sweet peppers and other sliced vegetables. I also used this tomatillo avocado dip as a thick dressing smothered on top of my crispy carnitas and it was amazing. If you decide to use this dip as a salad dressing, you may want to thin it out with coconut milk or water first.

If you’re wondering what to make with your tomatillos, try this tomatillo avocado ranch dip!
