This recipe starts with the sour cream, garlic, lime, and salt. Then I added an avocado and fresh cilantro to freshen it up and make it a total flavor bomb. It’s really good yet simple to make.

Do I Need to Use Food Processor?

The food processor is the easiest tool to make this dressing. But it is surely soft and fluid enough to use a blender if you have one.
