This popular dressing can be prepared in so many different ways – thin and vibrant or rich and creamy! I like my green goddess dressing a bit creamy, bold and with plenty of green herb flavors. For this recipe, I used a creamy avocado and plenty of fresh parsley and cilantro.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 large avocado
  • 3-4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (alternative subsitutes: walnut, hemp or macadamia)
  • 1 large lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of pine nuts, raw
  • 2 cloves raw garlic
  • Freshly ground pepper and sea salt, for taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor, blend all until smooth.
  2. Serve over green blends like kale, arugula, spinach and/or butter lettuce. Crisp greens like romaine and iceberg add for a nice crunch. Chopped veggies, fruit, nuts and seeds marry well with this dressing.

  1. Wow this is so simple and looks beautiful! I’ve made an avocado based dressing for potato salad, but haven’t put it on top greens. Adding this to my plan for next week’s meals!
