Recipe Ingredients

The key to green goddess dressing is the herbs. When you combine so much fresh herbaceous flavor, you’re bound to end up with a wonderful result. Add in some creamy avocado? Fugheddaboudit.

Here’s what you need:

  • Lemon
  • Avocado
  • Oil: I use extra virgin olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Parsley
  • Tarragon
  • Chives
  • Salt & Pepper

*Note: There is no mayo in the green goddess dressing! When you add a creamy avocado, you don’t need mayo, and making it this way also keeps it vegan and vegetarian.

Making the Dressing

When I tell you this salad dressing is easy to make, I mean it. Just throw everything besides the oil into your blender, pulse, and then drizzle the oil in as you continue to blend it. Season to taste and enjoy!

*Optionally, before you make it, you can char the lemon and chives before you make the dressing. It adds a tiny bit of smokey depth to the flavor, but it’s totally up to you! The dressing is equally wonderful without it.

To Store:

Transfer the salad dressing to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 5 days.

All of the ingredients added to the blender.

Using Green Goddess Dressing

I like to use this creamy, herby dressing on top of a bright, fresh salad or as a dipping sauce for air fryer sweet potato fries. You can also drizzle it on top of eggs, or use it inside collard wraps.

Pictured above is a beautiful, crunchy salad with romaine, sliced avocado, sweet potatoes, sliced grilled sirloin, and fresh herbs. It was unbelievable!!

Add the lemons face down on the grill and cook just until browned, about 2 minutes.
