Vegan Green Goddess Dressing that’s packed with greens, apple cider vinegar, EVOO and is completely dairy-free. Perfect over a kale salad, a sweet potato, or even used as a dip.
A few weeks back on WTFDAW…I had a loaded sweet potato that rocked my world. It had kale, black beans, and Annie’s Green Goddess dressing. While I love Annie’s products, I knew I had to try and recreate this masterpiece from scratch.
Traditional green goddess dressing calls for mayo and/or sour cream. I’ve even seen buttermilk thrown around! But I wanted to make a dressing using only greens, unrefined plant oil (aka EVOO), and vinegar. Clean & simple.
I’m not gonna lie. I also just love the name of this dressing. I think everyone deserves to feel like a goddess every now and again. I know I feel most like a goddess when I’m eating lots of whole foods, tons of greens, staying uber hydrated, getting enough zzzzz’s, and practicing yoga on the regs.
Hopefully after trying this dressing, you’ll get your goddess on too.

- 1 garlic clove
- 1 1/2 small - medium avocados
- 5 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 6 tbsp water
- 3/4 cup basil
- 1/4 cup parsley
- 1/4 cup chives
- 1/2 cup scallions (white parts removed)
- Juice of 1 1/2 small lemons
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- In a food processor, blend together the garlic, avocado, olive oil, and water. Add basil, parsley, chives, and scallions and pulse to blend. Add lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and salt and blend to combine.
Depending on taste, you may want to add more or less of vinegar, lemon juice, and salt. I'd recommend adding a little at a time to your taste preference.
You also may need to add more water to achieve desired consistency.
I purposefully didn't add any sweetener because I like tangy but if it's too tangy for ya, add 1/2 tsp honey or agave nectar.
