What Is Green Goddess Dressing?
Traditionally, green goddess dressing is a mayonnaise based salad dressing that contains lots of fresh herbs and garlic. Instead of using mayonnaise in this recipe, I opted to use an avocado to recreate this creamy dressing.
Mayonnaise isn’t the best food to consume. Store bought mayo is full of harmful vegetable oils that can cause free radical damage in the body. Avocados are filled with healthy monounsaturated fats.
Some green goddess dressings contain anchovy to help bring out the savory flavors of the herbs and garlic. This recipe doesn’t call for anchovy but you can add it if you feel like it. Mash up two anchovy fillets and add to the dressing.
Blending The Keto Goddess Dressing
I recommend using a blender or food processor to mix up this dressing. Green goddess dressing is known to be a creamy dressing, so you want it as smooth as possible. Using a high powered blender or food processor will help achieve this.
Ways To Serve Green Goddess Dressing
Keto green goddess dressing is a creamy, flavorful salad dressing and dip that pairs well with many other low carb foods.
- Salad Dressing: Green goddess dressing is delicious on top of a salad. I adore this dressing in a grilled chicken salad with blueberries on top.
- Vegetables: Use this as a dip to dunk broccoli, cauliflower, and cucumber slices.
- Burger or Sandwiches: Apply a dollop of the green goddess dressing on top of your burger or sandwich as a condiment.
- Dip: You can dip pork rinds, shrimp, keto crackers and many other keto favorite foods you dip
Storing Green Goddess Salad Dressing
This keto salad dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Since the dressing contains avocado, the green goddess dressing may start to brown. To prevent this, pour the dressing into a container and squeeze a layer of lemon juice on top. Then cover with plastic wrap.
When you go to use the salad dressing, pour off the lemon juice, mix the dressing and serve.
