Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

Feb 6, 2019

Do you love green goddess dressing?

Then you are going to love this Avocado Green Goddess Dressing!

Recently I had a spicy and zesty green goddess dressing at a local salad shop.  Since then I was inspired to make my own version.

Instead of oil as the fat source, this dressing contains avocado.  Avocados are a heart-healthy fruit that contains monounsaturated fatty acids.  I love adding avocados to recipes.  Especially since they are rich in various nutrients such as Folate, Vitamin K, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Potassium.

I love added nutritious fat sources such as avocados or olive oil to salads to help aid in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.  Fat-soluble vitamins found in vegetables are Vitamins A, D, E, and K.  You can increase the absorption of vegetables in salads by adding dressings containing olive oil, nuts, seeds, and avocados.

To add a bit of tanginess and protein I used greek yogurt as the base for the dressing.  Greek yogurt is usually my go-to for making homemade versions of dressing that call for mayonnaise, buttermilk, or sour cream.

Try this dressing with this Easy Mexican Kale Salad.
