- Prepare the Avocado: Cut the ripe avocado in half, remove the pit, and scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl.
- Mash the Avocado: Use a fork to mash the avocado until it’s smooth and free of lumps.
- Add the Sour Cream and Mayonnaise: Add the sour cream and mayonnaise to the mashed avocado. These ingredients will provide the creamy base for your dressing.

- Taste and Adjust: Taste the dressing and adjust the seasonings if needed. You can add more salt, pepper, or lemon juice to suit your taste.
- Chill: For the best flavor, refrigerate the dressing for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
