This simple 5-ingredient Avocado Green Goddess Dressing is so easy to make, and can double as a nutritious salad dressing or flavorful dip that will have you returning again and again to that plate of freshly chopped veg! Avocado replaces the typical dairy cream base making it vegan, while providing nourishing plant-based fats.


  • 1 avocado (or sub for 1 cup Greek or vegan yogurt, mayonnaise, or sour cream)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or grated
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon (about 1 tbsp)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp warm water
  • Coarse ground salt + fresh-cracked pepper
  • Fresh herbs (approx 1 cup) – I used basil, parsley, cilantro (or sub for mint, dill, or tarragon)
  • Optional: For a ceasar-ish dressing, add 2-4 tbsp nutritional yeast or Parmesan cheese


1. In a high speed blender, combine all ingredients. 

2. Pulse on high until super smooth and creamy. 

3. Add 2-4 tbsp nutritional yeast or Parmesan cheese (Optional. This gives it a cheesier taste)

4. Drizzle on your salad greens or put in a bowl to dip your fresh veggies. Enjoy!
