Creamy and delicious and full of plant-based goodness this vegan Green Goddess dressing recipe is a crowd-pleaser. The creaminess comes from tahini and avocado combined with parsley or cilantro and green onions for that lovely green color.
Combine those ingredients with garlic, tamari (like soy sauce), lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar for tanginess and you have a winner.

Enjoy this beautiful, green, packed full of goodness Goddess dressing on my Green Goddess Bowl! It’s one hearty grain bowl that is pared perfectly with this dressing.
In addition, I’ve been looking for some cool containers to store my homemade dressing in. I didn’t find much in my search, so I bought a carton of 12 bottles, some waterproof labels, and voila – I have salad dressing in a bottle. Since I made homemade lotions last holiday, it was easy to find resources.
So, here you have it. Green Goddess Dressing. It does contain fat from sesame seeds and avocado, but no added oil! I’ll post my bottle and label resources at the end of the recipe. Enjoy!
