    Avocado Green Goddess Dressing is full of good-for-you veggies and herbs, perfect for salads, but also ideal as a dipping sauce or a spread for sandwiches.

    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 fillets for tang (like Caesar dressing), but this ingredient is optional.

    PRO TIP: Greek yogurt is strained for longer than regular yogurt, resulting in a heavy and thick texture. It is better for sauces than regular yogurt.

    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!

    Questions you might have about how to make green goddess dressing:

    Can I make this without a food processor? I will be the first to tell you that one of my most used kitchen appliances is my mini food processor. I use it for everything and highly recommend investing in one.

    You can also use a blender or immersion (stick) blender. Just blend until smooth.

    However, if you don’t have one and don’t want to get one, you can finely minced all your ingredients. It will be a little chunky and won’t have the smooth texture the dressing in known for.

    Does this homemade dressing need to be refrigerated? Yes! Since it doesn’t have any additives or preservatives, it need to be refrigerated.

    Is this a healthy salad dressing? It really depends on your definition of healthy so I stray from answering this question directly. However, I like to think this is a healthy green goddess dressing.
