Healthier Green Goddess Dressing
This is my healthier version of Green Goddess Dressing....this herby flavorful dressing is great on salads and also used as a dip for veggies.
You could make it even healthier by leaving out the mayonnaise altogether.
Green Goddess Dressing
6 scallions (the green parts only) coarsely chopped
10 Basil leaves coarsely chopped
1 sprig of fresh tarragon (strip leaves and chop) *optional
1 clove of Garlic Chopped
The juice of 1 lemon
Salt and Pepper
1/2 an Avocado sliced
1/2 c. Plain Greek Yogurt
1/2 c. Mayonnaise (I use Olive Oil mayo)
1/2 c. Light Sour Cream
1/4-1/2 c. Buttermilk
In a food processor or blender combine first 5 ingredients and blend until smooth. Add a little dash of buttermilk if you are having trouble getting the herbs to puree.
Add Avocado, Greek Yogurt, Mayo and Sour Cream and blend.
Slowly pour in buttermilk until the dressing reaches your desired consistency approx. 1/4c. to 1/2 c. depending on how thick/thin you like your dressing.
Chill for about an hour to let flavors combine. Store in airtight glass container for up to a week.
I brought this dressing with a big Chicken Cobb Salad to a lunch with some of my favorite ladies last week and it was a big hit!
