Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado pitted, peeled, and quartered
  • ¼ cup sour cream regular or vegan*
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. dill fresh, finely chopped*
  • 1 Tbsp. parsley fresh, finely chopped*
  • ½ tsp. onion powder
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ½ tsp. salt to taste
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¾ cup milk buttermilk or oat milk

Instructions

  1. Add avocado, sour cream, and lemon juice to a food processor. Process for 30-60 seconds, or until the avocado is smooth.

  2. Add mayonnaise, dill, parsley, powders, salt, pepper and milk. Process until ingredients are just combined.

  3. Refrigerate for 15-30 minutes so the flavors can meld together before serving. Store in an airtight container for up to 2-3 days in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

  • This recipe makes roughly 1 ¾ cups of ranch dressing.  A serving size is 2 tablespoon.
  • You can use plain yogurt in place of the sour cream.
  • Can also substitute with ¾ teaspoon of dried dill and parsley.

Storage

It is best if you make this sauce and serve it soon after making for freshest taste and color.

  • To Store: Pour into a tall airtight jar. The less of the sauce that is exposed to the air, the better. Tightly place a piece of plastic wrap over the top of the sauce to prevent it from turning brown. It should last for up to three to four days, but will start to change colors slightly after one or two days.
  • To Freeze: This is not recommended since both mayo and sour cream are used. They will separate upon thawing.

Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Fresh herbs are best. The flavor will be so much better if fresh dill and parsley are used.
  • Save the mayo for last. It will end up separating if processed too long.
  • Swap out the sour cream. If you don't have sour cream on hand, yogurt also works great!
  • Use it on everything. Get creative and use your imagination and pair it with breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
  • Place some plastic wrap on top. This keeps it from oxidizing and will stay green longer.
  • Let it sit. Allowing the dip to rest in the refrigerator before serving will give the flavors a chance to come together.
