Green Goddess Dressing - light and healthy Notes

I saw a similar recipe and decided to blend 3 or 4 green goddess dressings with my ideas. Spice House French Leaf Tarragon is really strong and delicious and I always have it on hand, whereas fresh tarragon is not always available. So I substituted parsley and the dry in place of fresh. The Vit C helps retard discoloration.

  • 1 small ripe avocado (or 1/2 large avocado)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 clove crushed garlic or 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 3 chopped green onion tops, up to the white part
  • 1 Cup flat leaf Italian parsley (about a handful)
  • 2 teaspoons French Leaf tarragon
  • 3/4 Cup low fat buttermilk
  • 1/4 Cup low fat sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Vitamin C granules or one capsule poured out
  • salt to taste
Serves / Yields

1-1/2 cups approx.

Preparation Instructions

Scoop out avocado place with rest of ingredients into blender and blend until smooth.

Helpful Hints

This is good over fish, on mixed greens, on sliced tomatoes by themselves. A good salad is arugula,watercress tossed with a little, topped with fresh sliced tomatoes and drizzle a little more on the tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to tatste.
