Green goddess salad dressing, named for its green color, is typically made with mayonnaise. By substituting avocados for mayonnaise, the result is a healthy and creaming dressing that is perfect on salads and fish, or even as a dip for crudité. Adding water ¼ cup at a time helps to loosen up the dressing until the desired consistency is reached without adding any additional fat or flavor. Consider swapping in basil or parsley for the cilantro to create a variation on the healthy green goddess salad dressing below recipe.
