Green Goddess Avocado Dressing

‘Green Goddess’ salad dressing typically contains mayonnaise, sour cream, chervil, chives, anchovy, tarragon, lemon juice, and pepper.  In our version, we’ve omitted the salty anchovies and replaced some of dairy with avocado – which adds even more flavor and more of that great green color!

You could make this completely dairy free by using all avocado (may need up to 2 whole avocados),  then adding a bit of water or lime juice to thin the dressing out as needed.

Add just enough lime juice until you get the flavor and consistency you desire.
