Aromatic Wins the Day

One of our favorite things about this glorious green salad dressing is how creamy it is, but its absolute best feature has to be the punch of aromatic herbs in it. The beloved basil, parsley, mint, and chives give this stellar salad companion an incomparable flavor. You’re free to add or swap any other amazing herb into the mix. Are you growing some on your windowsill or garden this year? Chop them and let them join the green party!

Avocado for Oil

If you’re trying to reduce your oil consumption, then replacing it for avocado on some recipes is something we highly endorse. Not only do you get a good dose of healthy fats but you add a much-desired creaminess and flavor to your meals. Have you tried our favorite avocado pesto? You’ll absolutely love it!

Even if you don’t have time to prepare this dressing, you can massage some mashed avocado into your greens, and voila! Try using more raw avocado in recipes that call for oil and let us know how you get along!

How to Store My Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

We wish we could tell you that once prepared, you can store this for weeks inside your refrigerator and have it look as beautiful, but because of the quick oxidation of avocados, it’s best to eat it the same day if you want it to look pretty. So, when it comes to this Avocado Green Goddess Dressing, fresh is best.
