I’m here to tell you that salads do not have to be boring.
And they don’t have to be slathered in a heavily processed dressing filled with inflammatory oils and unpronounceable ingredients to taste good. Those days are in the past because today, I’m sharing with you an oh so simple and tasty Green Goddess Dressing that’s full of healthy fats and made with only clean ingredients! This dressing is made entirely in a food processor or blender. It has a lovely fresh flavor from the basil (I heart basil) and it’s infused with just enough garlic. The creaminess comes from the avocado in combination with a dairy-free creamer called Nutpods. We recently were introduced to Nutpods by our friends at Whole30 and it’s hands down one of the best dairy-free creamers we have tried. In fact, It’s a new staple for both Jessica and I, especially when we’re Whole30’ing it!
