When you always keep a fresh bottle of goat milk kefir in your fridge like we do, homemade dressing is a snap. Originally calling for buttermilk, we’ve substituted our plain kefir in this ranch dressing recipe and love the result. Nutrient-dense avocados lend a velvety texture and vibrant hue to the dressing. It can be used as a dip for raw vegetables or over salad greens. Adapted from the Huffington Post’s Ranch Dressing recipe.

What you'll need

¾ cup Redwood Hill Farm plain kefir
½ avocado
2-3 Tbsp. Tbsp. sour cream (we love Green Valley Creamery lactose-free sour cream)
2 Tbsp. lemon juice or white vinegar
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh herbs (chives, parsley, tarragon, or dill)
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Few dashes Tabasco sauce (optional)


Combine all ingredients in a small food processer or blender. Blend for 30 seconds-1 minute or until smooth.

Season to taste with salt and fresh black pepper.
