    The first time I tried green goddess dressing, I assumed it was made with avocados. I mean, anything this green must have avocados, right? Wrong.

    After some research, I found out that it has many incarnations and avocado isn’t typically one of the main ingredients. Can you believe this food trend has been around since the late 60’s?

    It started as a dressing on California Cobb salads and it got its name from its bright hue and heavenly texture.

    Typically, a Green Goddess Dressing is made with mayonnaise, sour cream, chervil, chives, anchovy, tarragon, lemon juice, and pepper.

    However, for my Avocado Green Goddess Dressing, I decided avocado would be in the mix. The health benefits are unparalleled and the taste and creaminess are hard to imitate.

    I use Avocado Green Goddess Dressing on everything. So much so that I often refer to it as a sauce or a condiment. No dish is safe. It is incredibly versatile.

    It uses yogurt instead of mayonnaise, making it even more packed with health benefits.  I also added a few anchovy filets for tang (like Ceasar dressing), but this ingredient is optional.

    Add a little more buttermilk to thin it out for a nice salad dressing, a use a little less and you it becomes a sandwich spread. The measurements below are meant to be used as a dipping sauce.

    Keep your Avocado Green Goddess Dressing stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week and enjoy!
