Green Goddess Dressing

BySarah Axtell, ND April 29, 2018

I try to avoid store bought salad dressing. First, they are typically full of inflammatory vegetable oils and sugar. Secondly, they just don’t taste very good. Dress up your salads, roasted or steamed veggies, fish or chicken with this Green Goddess Dressing. It doesn’t contain mayo or dairy, but it is rich, creamy and satisfying. I really could eat it by the spoonful. Make up a batch on the weekends and enjoy your green leafy vegetables all week-long. It stores nicely in the fridge for up to a week.

  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (found in the bulk section at health food stores)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend on high until smooth.
