Today we have a creamy and tangy Vegan Green Goddess Dressing and Dip that practically sings “Springtime!”
Why vegan green goddess dressing? Well, we made a “regular” green goddess dressing a few months ago and it was so tasty it even converted some salad-haters in our house. (!) . Nevertheless, we wanted to have a version that our vegan friends could enjoy. Plus, now that it’s springtime, we wanted a beautiful and fragrant green dressing or dip to make even the plainest foods feel spring-like.
When it comes to flavor, this dressing has it all: Avocado, dill, tahini, garlic, and lemon juice. Individually, they each pack a little “zing.” Collectively, they make beautiful music together.
Vegan Green Goddess Dressing and Dip
A delicious and tangy vegan green goddess dressing and dip.
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1/4 cup fresh dill leaves, packed
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp salt
For the dressing:
Place all ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth. Add more olive oil or lemon juice to taste if it is not liquid enough. Adjust salt to taste. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until serving.
After we enjoyed it as a dip with fresh veggies, we also tried pairing it with roasted cabbage. (Cabbage just seems to be one of those things that we always have in our refrigerator.) When you roast cabbage, it’s crispy and just faintly sweet. But when you add just a little bit of this tangy dressing, you can take it to a whole new level.
Note that if you want to use it as a salad dressing, you may want to change the consistency. If you want it more liquid-y, you can add a little more olive oil and/or lemon juice. (We prefer it a little thicker, but it’s just as tasty either way.)
