Green Goddess Dressing

With just 6 ingredients, this Green Goddess Dressing is ridiculously easy to make. You simply place everything –the avocado, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, herbs de Provence, salt, and water– in a blender and puree until smooth. The result? This deliciously healthy dressing.

We eat Green Goddess Dressing over salads, and also use it as a dip. When served with chopped vegetables such as cucumber and celery it’s a healthy low-carb football snack for a lazy Sunday.

I love avocados because they not only taste incredible, they’re full of  healthy fat. In fact, avocados are one of the fattiest foods on the planet with more than 70% of their calories coming from fat. Avocados are also loaded with fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and folate.

We love eating this keto salad dressing over the greens from our garden. The boys love it, and so do I! If you want to thin out this dressing, just add a tablespoon at a time of water until it is the desired consistency. Thick or thin, it’s incredibly healthy and delicious!

In other news, I was lucky enough to attend a marimba concert today in which both of my children performed. The show was the culmination of a summer day camp put on by Kutandara, a local group that plays Zimbabwean music. If you are ever in Boulder, you might want to catch a marimba show by the professional Kutandara band (not the one my children play in); the concert schedule is on their website or check out one of their excellent CD’s.

Kutandara is an entirely cross cultural experience. The directors, Amy and Randy bring over musicians from Zimbabwe to teach the children; they also do a great deal of relief work in that country. Amy and Randy are amazing people in all that they give to the Boulder community and the people of Zimbabwe!
