Vegan Green Goddess Dressing

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on August 5, 2011

I want to be a Goddess.

IMG_9561-3

Or even better, a glowing Goddess.

Meow.

However, I don’t always feel like a Goddess in my day to day life.

IMG_9516

Being a baker & food blogger covered in syrup, flour, and who knows what else on a daily basis isn’t exactly Goddess material. Neither is my worn apron with oats stuck to it, my lunch lady hair net, or my flustered red face when baking Glo Bars in the summer heat. And if you think I actually bake in heels, I’m sorry, I really am.

It’s frump town over here most days.

Frump.

Town.

Though when I do get dressed up for a special event, it’s extra special. This weekend I’ll be dressed to the nine’s for my brother-in-law’s wedding, complete with sparkly jewelry, an evening clutch, heels, and a cocktail dress. And if I’m lucky, a cocktail in my hand.

Berry lipgloss…much to Eric’s chagrin.

Shimmery eye shadow, black eye liner, and mascara.

I guess I better find that cocktail dress…

Sometimes, though, feeling like a Goddess comes from within. [OK, I might sound like a certain women’s shaving commercial at this point, but go with it.] Sometimes a workout makes me feel like a Goddess. I rocked out a 60 minute spin class this morning and I left dripping in sweat and beet red in the face. Total Goddess.

And often, FOOD makes me feel like a Goddess! That’s the best. Eating a vegan diet makes me feel like a Goddess. No matter what things in my life are going on that make me feel the opposite of a Goddess, sometimes all I need is one rockin’ recipe to give me a kick to my step.

This is that recipe.

Have you heard of the famous Green Goddess Dressing which is thought to hail from the Palace Hotel in San Francisco? It’s a pretty big deal. I finally decided that I would make a vegan version, cuz you know, the original has 3 cups of MAYO in it.

I don’t know who equated mayonnaise and feeling like a Goddess, but it must have been a man.

Ladies, this one is for you.

IMG_9524

Finger-licking good.

IMG_9501

The avocado replaced the mayo in this recipe VERY well. Love avocado as a mayo replacer! This dressing would also be amazing poured over my Protein Powder Goddess Bowl. I will be trying that tonight!

IMG_9512

I also won’t tell you how much I ate yesterday. That would be embarrassing…

IMG_9555

Let’s just say I felt like a Goddess for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

IMG_9567

P.S.- I had so much fun chatting with you on facebook yesterday! I’m pretty sure my productivity went down about 5 hours, but who’s counting? It’s so fun to get to know you guys on a more interactive level and see your lovely faces.

If you’re looking for me you can find me on Facebook asking random questions, gushing about food, posting pics, and rambling on about body image epiphanies.

This looks and sounds amazing – what a great green colour! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I will try it soon.

No baking in heels, huh? Sounds a bit like me sewing in just my underwear. What can I say, summer is hot and sewing is better when I’m cool :)

I’ve tried Goddess dressing before and I didn’t like it — but seeing the ingredients you used makes me want to try your version — maybe I tried a mayo based one? How could avocado made into a dressing not be delicious?

I’ve never had the green goddess dressing but I used to ADORE annie’s goddess dressing, until I found out I can’t eat it anymore thanks to it containing gluten. So thanks for an awesome looking alternative because I’m pretty sick of my usual balsamic and olive oil drizzles… they aren’t doing anything for my goddess status!

Balsamic & vinegar gets old pretty quickly. Try making other types of vinagarettes, there are so many tasty ones out there. I currently use a japanese ginger one that even my partner loves.

Apron Appeal August 5, 2011 at 8:12 am

a salad without dressing is just a veggie tray. I’ve been avoiding salads for the past bit because I want dressing and haven’t found one I like. Can’t wait to try it. Oh and not that I think I’m better than you but if my kitchen looked like the picture you posted…I would think I’ve died and gone to heaven….whenever I walk into the kitchen it seams like all of my baking/cooking supplies just tumble out of the cabinets…they all want to join the party and the clean up is brutal.

Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers August 5, 2011 at 8:13 am

I was turned off by the avocado due to its shelf life, but now that I read it can last a week in the fridge, I plan to put it on my to-try list. Thanks!

The week in the fridge is an estimate, but I will update it once I test it out. Also you can make a half batch!

Julia August 5, 2011 at 8:15 am

Love this! Avocado is my fave. How long will this keep in the fridge? Will the avocado turn brown or does all the acid keep it nice and green? Thanks!

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 5, 2011 at 8:34 am

I have no idea, but I suspect the ACV and lemon helps preserve it longer. I will update the recipe after I test it and see how long it keeps!

Julia August 5, 2011 at 8:38 am

awesome, thanks! I will be making this today!

Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit August 5, 2011 at 8:21 am

haha there is NOTHING Goddess about all that mayo. Yeesh.
When I was recovering from a really dark time, I envisioned myself as a golden goddess and defined what that was for me – strong, independent, confident, loving. I love to draw, so I ended up sketching ‘the golden goddess’ which ended up being an image of me in the lightest most amazing light I could conjure up at the time. It was such a HUGE part of my recovery.
Thanks for the reminder ;)

Thanks for posting this! I have always been kind of freaked out when it comes to mayonnaise (it’s sort of a weird food). To be honest, I won’t even try the vegan version!

I can’t wait to try this!

I havent tried the vegan version either.

Arielle (Your Vegan Girlfriend) August 5, 2011 at 8:23 am

Men and mayo just go together huh? I can’t think of anything more disgusting than eating plain straight up non-vegan mayo. YUCK! Love this avocado based dressing! I’ve never made a homemade dressing using avo as the base and am so excited to try! Generally speaking is avo a good equivalent to silken tofu in dressings, puddings, and the like?

Angela (Oh She Glows) August 5, 2011 at 8:33 am

Yes I would say so!

Angela,

I drool reading your posts and love them (and you!) oh so much. How do you contain yourself from eating all the yummy batter, dressings and ingredients before it makes it to the table? I would be 10lbs heavier and never have a real meal because I wouldn’t be able to wait!

Cheers to you and health!

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga August 5, 2011 at 8:40 am

I love the opening part

“However, I don’t always feel like a Goddess in my day to day life. “– really? You don’t feel totally amazing every single day? Ha! What woman (or person) does!

Frump Town? You could never be fully in this category b/c you don’t have a baby yet. Once you become a mother not only are you covered in flour, but all kinds of bodily fluids, too. It’s a different kind of “being covered in”…lol

Seriously though…You are always stunning, Angela, seriously!! You are soooo gorgeous!

And this dressing, also a beauty!

I’ve been making a vegan goddess dressing for several weeks now, absolutely obsessed with it. Although, I use tahini instead of avocado, and dill as my main herb of choice. I’ve been putting it on everything lately.

I recently bought a bottle of Amy’s version of this for the first time a few weeks ago and upon the first taste, I knew I had to make it! Your vegan version sounds so much more goddess like than the ingredient list on the bottle… but I am determined to make a non-vegan version too ;)

My favorite thing to use it on right now is my ‘goddess bowl’ ;) … pinto beans, spinach sauteed in garlic & olive oil, quinoa, green onion & the green goddess dressing all topped with sriracha. SOOOO good.

I also don’t cook in heels and love hearing that you’re absolutely normal. I cook in my bandana, apron and no shoes most of the time (I don’t like shoes. I love them, but I don’t like them). Since I’m constantly moving and shaking, I don’t wear makeup because it’d just end up running down my face. I like to think of my cooking as a sort-of workout… interrupted by mini photo-shoots every step of the way. :) Sounds like you’re the same! Except, of course, you make awesome salad dressing and I don’t!

Starting this weekend, I’m going vegan and unprocessed — I’ve been a vegetarian for 10 years (I really don’t eat much dairy anyway, other than cheese sometimes…milk is gross), and tomorrow my fiancé and I move in together. I figured, hey, I’m making one huge life change (living with the fiancé), now is a great time to add another life change and take my vegetarian lifestyle a couple steps further by finally going vegan. Your blog and recipes, and heck, YOU, are an inspiration to me and I so look forward to trying out more of your delicious recipes — in our brand new apartment kitchen. :)

The only green goddess dressing I’ve tried is the one made by Annie’s (I think?), and I wasn’t a huge fan. Not sure what it was about it that didn’t work for me, but it was only meh. I like that you’ve done an avocado base, because let’s be honest, avocados make everything better! Might need to give this one a whirl (bad pun).

I can’t wait to try this! Bet it would be delicious on sandwiches with grilled summer veggies, yum!!!

I tried it tonight with arugula, strawberries, sprouts and sunflower seed salad. My sister loved it but I was a little “meh”. I think I need to increase the agave. Would love more suggestions about what to have it with.

I just came across your blog and it’s great! I already tried a few recipes and they are yummy. I’ve tried the VOO and this green goddess dressing. My five year old daughter just loved it and wanted a salad “right now”. I’m thinking about using limes and cilantro (instead of the lemon and basil) and have a Mexi-Cali Salad with grilled corn, jicama, black beans, etc.

aww so glad your daughter enjoyed it! Great ideas about the modifications too :)

Sarah August 16, 2011 at 8:27 pm

Limes and cilantro is a great idea! This would be so delicious in a Mexican-style wrap or as a dip for hot spicy tortilla chips too.

Anna Marie August 15, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Oooh. Another thought – great dip for grilled artichokes? I’ll find out tonight!

Sarah August 16, 2011 at 8:25 pm

I tried this tonight and it’s delicious! I didn’t have any basil so I added a tablespoon of pesto instead. I used honey as a sweetener (but only a tiny bit). My fiance went crazy for this as a dip. Thanks!!

I made this other day with the tahini. Thank you for the suggestion, as I do not like avocado. Even my husband said This is outrageous! I plan to keep it on hand at all times. Yum!

This dressing is amazing! I just made it last night and my hubby was raving over how delicious it was! I couldn’t finish all of my kale/chard salad so I put it in the fridge and the greens still stayed fresh overnight in the fridge with the dressing on it! AMAZING!!! Thanks for sharing!

Just made this for dinner tonight. Step 3 is a must! Since there are only 2 people in my house, I halfed the recipe and threw everything into the VitaMix – perfect.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I just made this recipe yesterday but with tahini instead of avocado (as I didn’t have any).
It was delicious!
Thank you so much for this recipe that will become a big classic at home :)

Cheers from a French in Sweden <3

I’m going to make this tomorrow with Protein Powder Goddess Bowl. Do you just pour the dressing over? Because in the Goddess Bowl you cook with the dressing. Thank you:)

So delicious! I frequently even replace the parsley and basil with cilantro to serve with a southwest type salad and it’s just as amazing. Love this dressing.

Will the recipe still taste good without the oil?

Reply

Angela Liddon April 3, 2017 at 12:01 pm

Hey Michaela, I’m sorry I don’t know for sure, but you could certainly try it out! My guess is that it would still taste nice without it since there are fats from the mayo and avocado in there. :)

Could you share the nutritional value counts to this recipe for Green
Goddess Dressing

Reply

Angela Liddon April 6, 2017 at 11:56 am

Hey Ellen, Unfortunately I don’t have the nutritional information for this recipe on hand right now, but if you plug the recipe’s information into a free online tool like caloriecount.com or nutritiondata.com, or even an app like MyFitnessPal, you should be able to find out everything you want to know fairly quickly! I hope this helps.

Lauren Burn May 18, 2017 at 4:42 am

I love this recipe!

To make it extra healthy/sexy/green I like to add 1-2 tsp of spirulina! The other flavours do a great job of cancelling out its funky after-taste :)

Reply

Christina May 18, 2017 at 3:27 pm

Thanks for the awesome recipe.

Do you have any recommendations for omitting the oil? Like should we add more liquid to the recipe? Or just omit and see how it comes out?

Reply

Angela Liddon May 31, 2017 at 1:24 pm

Hey Christina, I’m sorry, I haven’t tried this myself. But, you could certainly try omitting the oil! My guess is that it would still taste nice without it since there are fats from the mayo and avocado in there. :) And you could experiment a bit and try adjusting other ingredients if you think it’s necessary.

Reply

Rachel June 7, 2017 at 1:33 pm

You’ve referenced mayo several times in the comments but I don’t see it listed as an ingredient. Am I miss reading something? Thanks!

Reply

Angela Liddon June 26, 2017 at 1:05 pm

Hey Rachel, Mayo is often an ingredient in green goddess dressings, but in this particular recipe it’s replaced entirely by avocado – so no worries, you’re not missing anything. :) That said, my more recent version of a green goddess dressing does feature a bit of mayo, and that one’s found here. I hope this helps!

Made the tahini version of this tonight because the avocados at the store were hard rocks. Served it in a salad of thinly sliced napa cabbage, fennel, Brussels sprouts, little bit of red kale, green onions, and preserved lemon. It was delicious.

Angela (Oh She Glows) October 23, 2017 at 7:06 am

That sounds incredible..I’ve never had this dressing with brussels sprouts, but I need to. They’re one of my fave veggies.

This was incredible! Made it tonight for a buddha bowl consisting of roasted red pepper, onion, broccoli, sweet potato, brussel sprouts, plus chickpeas and quinoa. HOLY WOW. It was absolutely delicious. I think my SO was skeptical when I was preparing it all, but he gave rave reviews! Thanks so much for sharing this healthy and delicious recipe :)

Hey Jennifer, Oh man that sounds delicious!! So happy it was a hit with you both. :)
