Paleo Green Goddess Dip

Paleo Green Goddess Dip

One of the tenets of the Paleo diet is bidding farewell to commercially prepared salad dressings. This is particularly sad for me because I eat a salad everyday and I love the Bolthouse Farms Classic Ranch Yogurt Dressing. I love to dip carrots and fresh veggies in the dressing for a snack, and veggies just aren’t the same without a creamy accompaniment. My birthday is tomorrow and every year on my birthday I go to Melting Pot, which has the most delicious Green Goddess sauce. So imagine how happy I was when I came across a recipe for a paleo-friendly Green Goddess dressing in the February edition of More magazine. Of course I made a few tweaks to the recipe to make it Paleo friendly and to my liking. It was fun to make because I was able to experiment with using fresh herbs.

Green Goddess

  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp. fresh tarragon
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 3 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Combine everything in a food processor and blend until pureed.

It is delicious with veggies, but it’s too thick to put on a salad. Do you have ideas on other foods you can put green goddess dressing on? Chicken? Veggies? I need ideas to use the rest of my dip!
