Ingredients

  • 1 small clove garlic, peeled and smashed
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 avocado (8 ounces), chopped
  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup mixed fresh herbs (such as chives, tarragon, basil, cilantro, and parsley), plus more for serving
  • Crudités, for serving
  • Chef notes

    Grown-ups and kids alike will love this spin on the traditional ranch dip. Thin it with a little water and it also dresses a salad.

    Preparation

    1.

    Using a flat side of a knife, mash garlic with 1⁄2 teaspoon salt until a paste forms. Transfer to a food processor with avocado, vinegar, buttermilk, mustard, oil, 1⁄2 teaspoon salt, and 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper; purée until smooth. Add herbs; pulse just to combine.

    2.

    Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours. Sprinkle with more herbs and serve, with crudités.
