A vegan green goddess dressing that is not only delicious but also incredibly nutritious and totally skin friendly? This recipe is a winner and only takes five minutes to whip together!
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. The key to eating veggies is having a fabulous, delicious, glorious dressing to go with it. The creamier the better, but that usually means adding dairy or mayo or something along those lines.
I, being a dairy free food blogger, wasn’t going to include dairy, so I opted for some avocados and olive oil to give a rich and creamy feel to this dressing.
While I can’t guarantee this vegan green goddess dressing will turn you into a goddess, I CAN say that it will help support a glowing complexion. I think we all feel a little more goddess like when our skin is glowing, right?!
Avocados are packed with vitamin E, which more or less helps moisturize your skin from the inside out. Parsley is an amazing liver detoxifier, and garlic acts as a natural antimicrobial to keep any bad bacteria at bay!
What does green goddess dressing taste like?
Literal heaven. Ok, maybe not literal heaven, but it’s pretty close. It’s rich and creamy thanks to the avocado, but won’t make you feel weighed down because it’s dairy free. I know some people hate cilantro, so you can either use basil or parsley in place of it.
How to make green goddess dressing
This recipe is so easy, maybe too easy. But who’s going to complain about an easy recipe? Not I!
All you have to do is scoop out the flesh of the avocado, add it to a food processor with all remaining ingredients and voila! Healthy green goddess dressing. It will be pretty thick with these measurements, which is great for dipping or spreading, but if you want it to be thinner for salads, just add more olive oil, water, or even vegetable broth until it reaches your desired consistency.
This dressing will store in the fridge for about a week, but it may turn slightly brown given the nature of avocados. However, the lemon acts like a natural preservative and should help prevent this for at least a few days.
Delicious ways to enjoy this dressing
- As a dip for your favorite veggies
- With pasta (my personal favorite, duh)
- As a spread for sandwiches and wraps
- As a dressing for buddha bowls or salads

Creamy, flavorful, and deliciously dairy free, this is the only green goddess dressing recipe you need!
- 1 large avocado
- 2 green onions, chopped (white part included for a stronger flavor)
- 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
- 1/3 cup parsley, chopped
- Juice from 1 large lemon (about 2 tbsp)
- 1 large clove garlic
- 1/2 tsp sea salt (more to taste)
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar (or more to taste)
This recipe will be pretty thick, if you want a thinner consistency, add more water, just 1 tbsp at a time.
You can also use basil in place of cilantro or parsley, or add some in addition to those herbs.
Be sure to just use two individual green onions, not two bunches. Scallions and green onions are also the same thing.
If you don’t like cilantro, you can use basil or extra parsley in place of it.
