Originally calling for buttermilk, this tangy dressing substitutes Redwood Hill Farm’s plain kefir in this ranch dressing recipe. Nutrient-dense avocados lend a velvety texture and vibrant hue to the dressing. It can be used as a dip for raw vegetables, tortilla chips, or over salad greens!


  • ¾ cup Redwood Hill Farm plain kefir
  • ½ avocado
  • 2-3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh herbs (like chives, parsley, tarragon, or dill)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • A few dashes of your favorite hot sauce, optional


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small food processor or blender.
  2. Blend for 30 seconds-one minute or until smooth.
  3. Season to taste with salt and fresh black pepper.
