  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted and quartered
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2-4 tbsp milk use more for a thinner dressing
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 of a lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse/puree until creamy. Add additional milk (1 tablespoon at a time) for a thinner dressing.
  • Store in an sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Drizzle over salad or use as a dip for vegetables.


  • For a thinner dressing, add additional milk, lime juice and/or olive oil in 1-tablespoon increments until the desired consistency has been reached.
  • Make it a lighter dressing by cutting the amount of mayo and sour cream in half.
  • Add extra fresh herbs for an extra punch of flavor! Add dried herbs such as basil or throw in a few tablespoons of chopped fresh herbs! Fresh dill or fresh chives would taste DELICIOUS in this dressing.
  • Add 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder for extra flavor.
  • If you love ranch more than you love avocados, it would be delicious to add a teaspoon or so of dry ranch dressing mix.
