Avocado Green Goddess Dressing With Basil
Elevate your salad experience with this creamy, vegan dressing.
- 1 large avocado
- 2 tbs. white vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 cup lightly packed fresh basil
- ½ cup lightly packed fresh parsley
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Halve the avocado, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a blender. Add the vinegar, garlic, basil, parsley, and salt. Secure the lid and blend until smooth.
Remove the lid plug, then continue blending on low speed while very slowly pouring the oil through the lid opening. Purée until smooth.
Transfer the dressing to a jar and use immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to two days.
Tip: Try making this dressing with lemon juice instead of vinegar, or with other fresh herbs, such as mint or cilantro.
