Lake Charles Dip or Salad Dressing

Total Time

This can be used as a dip or salad dressing. I like to make this in the summertime with homegrown tomatoes. From the Cotton Country Collection. Best to use regular potato chips if served as dip.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix sour cream, Italian salad dressing mix, mayonnaise, tabasco and lemon juice together in glass bowl. Carefully fold in tomatoes and avocado. Chill before serving.

What can I say? I got a copy of *Cotton Country* as a wedding present 33 years ago, and the page on which this dip recipe is printed is so soiled and smeared that I can hardly read it! Luckily, I've memorized it, and make it often in summer---but I double the veggies, and sometimes sub Greek yogurt for the sour cream. A classic, for sure! (Note: chopping a lot of fresh basil leaves does this delicious recipe no harm!)

This recipe is the best. I got it from a friend years ago and we just found the actual recipe. I ajust it a little everytime, but it is a winner with everyone.
