This time of year, Spring and Summer we enjoy eating lots of hearty salads. I’m typically not one to saturate my salads with dressing but this dressing is different. It tastes so fresh, very robust and it’s creamy so you don’t need to add too much to taste it in your salad.

If you like Trader Joe’s green goddess dressing, try making your own, you will love it even more. This recipe has no mayo or oil and the flavors are so delicious. You can change it up by incorporating your favorite herbs and seasonings. If you want a little heat, add some serrano or jalapeño chili pepper. This is great on salads, as a dip or even in a yummy pasta recipe. I use it on fish and it adds such a wonderful flavor.

This is a great meal prep food too, I even made travel size portions for my daughter. It’s such a flavorful dressing and heart healthy too. The best part is you get to control the quality of your ingredients. You can also make it as thick or thin as you like by adjusting the liquids. If you want to make this vegan, use unsweetened coconut yogurt.

Thank you for stopping by.
