(Almost) Grownup Lunchbox Series – Super Simple Sour Cream Salsa Dressing

As you know by now, I love salsa. It’s one of the food loves of my life.

Whether I’m eating peach mango, pineapple, homemade fire-roasted, restaurant style or pico de gallo, all the flavors hold special places in my heart and in my stomach.

You’ve seen the beloved condiment make appearances in the (Almost) Grownup Lunchbox Series with my easy salsa-ranch dressing. However, this new flavor combination tops that one by a landslide.

Meet my new Super Simple Sour Cream Salsa Dressing!

This dipper made its first appearance in Wednesday’s lunchbox, which included steamed broccoli and carrots; one slice of Harris Teeter’s oven-roasted turkey; one slice of Harris Teeter’s white American cheese; and one serving of Late July Organic Snacks’ Sea Salt by the Seashore chips. I spooned the dressing on the veggies and scooped the mixture up with the chips.

To make one serving of this creamy, tangy topping, stir two tablespoons of the Bolthouse Farms’ Thousand Island Yogurt Dressing with one to two tablespoons of any salsa. The dressing is made with sour cream, which gives the non-traditional dip the signature tangy taste of regular thousand island. However, the Bolthouse Farms version packs only 40 calories for each two-tablespoon serving!

By the way, Late July Organic Snacks might be my favorite new brand. The company’s multigrain chips taste like traditional tortilla chips but pack a hefty nutritional punch. Yum!

I almost forgot to include the snacks that rounded out my lunchbox. My munchies included one cup of unsweetened applesauce . . .


  1. Do you like sour cream?
  2. Have you ever tried a yogurt-based dressing?
