Homemade Green Goddess Salad Dressing
Boost your health fat intake with this fresh salad dressing you can make yourself.
The easy formula for homemade salad dressing is FASS; fat, acid, sweet and salty. Get creative with your own mixtures of these flavors to create fresh and signature dressings at home.
Categories(s): Sides, Paleo, Ketogenic
Benefits: low carb healthy fat (LCHF), source of the healthy fats from avocado and coconut milk, source of acids to help stimulate stomach acid production (lemon juice and ACV)
Makes: about 1 ¼ cups dressing
1/2 medium ripe avocado
1/4 cup water (more if needed for desired consistency)
2 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tsp raw honey
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar (ACV); I recommend Bragg organic
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. MCT oil such a Bullet Proof XCT
2 tsp Dijon mustard such as Annie’s with horseradish
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. Add additional water and adjust flavor with your FASS ingredients if desired. Store in a glass jar for up to 5 days. It tastes so good it probably won’t last THAT long. My Nutribullet works great for blending this dressing.
