Recipe: Herbylicious and Creamy Salad Dressing


It may not look like much, but above is the recipe for what I think is the tastiest, creamiest and most refreshing salad dressing ever.  It’s a great alternative to store bought ranch-style, house or garlic and herb dressings, it’s inexpensive and you can fix it up in seconds using the things you would normally have lying around (I can’t be the only person with a slight sour cream addiction, can I?!).

Herbylicious Salad Dressing

Preparation Time: 35 minutes including chilling time

Calories Per Serving:  Using this recipe, approximately 25 per tablespoon

You will need:

  • 1 c light sour cream
  • 1/4 c semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 tsp garlic granules
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp dried chives
  • 1/2 tbsp dried mint
  • 1/4 tbsp dried dill


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Add more milk if you find the mixture a little too thick.
  3. Cover the bowl with cling film or transfer to a bottle and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
  4. Enjoy!

This dressing works great as a dip too, simply reduce the amount of milk in the recipe or omit it all together.  I find that not only does it work with salad, but it’s great with crisps, chips, raw veggie snacks and used in most savoury dishes as a sour cream substitute.
