Green Goddess Avocado Dressing
This Green Goddess avocado dressing is truly divine. It works beautifully on my Power Salad with Chicken. Actually, you can drizzle it on just about anything. As you can see from the picture, I often grab a power salad on the go while I’m doing something else, like getting ready to make a recipe video!
What does Green Goddess dressing contain?
Not all green goddess dressing contains avocado. Fresh herbs like parsley, basil leaves, chives, and fresh cilantro also give it that beautiful green color. Whatever you get the green from, you’ll want to use either sour cream or Greek yogurt to give it the desired consistency.
If you want a healthy salad dressing, lowfat Greek yogurt is the way to go. You can even go fat free if you’re really wanting to cut fat and calories. Or try it with a dairy-free yogurt if you’re trying to cut out dairy.
Why use avocado for this dressing?
Avocado lends this green goddess version an extra creamy texture along with nutrition and flavor. You can use this dressing as an avocado dipping sauce, too. Dip cucumber, tomato, carrots, celery, or even chicken wings.
Dressing Preparation and Storage
Blenders and food processors make it easy to whip up creamy salad dressings at home. Prep time is minimal! It takes just a few minutes to turn yogurt, ripe avocado, fresh cilantro or parsley, fresh garlic clove, red onion, and concentrated or fresh lime juice into a creamy avocado dressing.
You can store this dressing in the fridge in mason jars or a small pitcher bottle with a top.
Green Goddess Avocado Salad Dressing
- 2 ripe medium avocados cut into cubes
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cloves fresh garlic chopped
- 1 Tablespoon red onion
- 1 Tablespoon lime juice
- 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro
- 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
- In a blender, place all ingredients and blend until smooth. Drizzle dressing over the salad. I like to use a squirt bottle for this.
In the chicken salad that you have for this dressing you say that cilantro is key to the dressing but there isn’t any cilantro listed in the linked recipe. Is this an oversight or was that a mistake in the description in the linked salad recipe?
