Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Hey friends! Today I’m sharing this Green Goddess Salad Dressing. Which I’ve been O.B.S.S.E.S.E.D with recently. It’s a winning homemade dressing that’s ultra fresh and herby, smooth, and creamy. Made with a simple blend of fresh herbs, coconut yogurt, garlic, and mustard.

Enjoy this salad dressing drizzled on your favourite salads and buddha bowls. Certainly, it makes for a not-so-boring salad! I particularly like it on my Kale and Quinoa Salad.

So, let me tell you exactly how to make this green goddess salad dressing.

This green goddess salad dressing is light and tangy, creamy and smooth. So easy to make, vegan and healthy too!

Green Goddess Salad Dressing Recipe

The Ingredients

The ingredients

As I mentioned, this recipe is simple and straight forward. Made with fresh herbs, and a few pantry staples.

For this recipe you will need:

  • 3/4 cup fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro, dill and/or a mix of all three)
  • apple cider vinegar
  • coconut yogurt
  • olive oil
  • dijon mustard
  • agave
  • sea salt

How to make Green Goddess Dressing

Certainly, making this recipe couldn’t be easier! Just take your ingredients, toss in a blender, and blend on high until smooth.

If you have a high performance blender, it should take about 30 seconds. If using a standard blender, it takes a little longer – closer to 1 minute.

Then, pour the dressing in a jar and keep in fridge until you’re ready to use.

Now, it’s important to know that this recipe be modified to taste, and used as a guideline. I encourage you to try variations, subbing with your favourite herbs, and adding more or less of one ingredient to taste.

All-in-all, were looking for a good balance of herbs, citrus, creaminess and smoothness.


Personally, I really like parsley for making this delicious dressing. However, this salad dressing is really tasty with cilantro or dill, or a combo of all three combined. So enjoy getting creative and trying out new blends to find your favourites.

It’s a great way to switch up the dressing so you’re never bored. And, to use what you have on hand.


In addition, the citrus can be switched to your liking.  For this recipe, I’ve used apple cider vinegar. It’s a pantry staple in my kitchen, and gives that citrus flavour.

But this recipe works just as well with lemon or lime. Plus, you can add splashes more to taste if desired. Citrus helps to brighten the dressing and make it more tangy.

Adjust to taste

As previously mentioned, feel free to use this recipe as a guideline and adjust to taste. More citrus makes the dressing brighter and tangier. Variations of herbs add new flavour, coconut yogurt adds creaminess, and agave makes it sweeter.

It’s fun to play around with the taste and create a dressing that’s really suited to you.

Of course, sea salt always enhances flavour. So I encourage you to add a generous pinch when blending.
