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.
- 1⁄2 pint sour cream
- 1 (6 ounce) package Good Seasonings Italian salad dressing mix
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄2 avocado, chopped
- 1⁄2 tomatoes, seeded & chopped
- 1 dash Tabasco sauce or 1 dash hot sauce
- 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.
