Whenever I plan a meal, I always include a giant salad. Instead of a salad tonight, I made a vegan green goddess dressing for a crudité platter to serve dinner. On Sundays, I prepare a big meal, as well as meal prep for the week. Today, the beautiful weather inspired me to make a vegan green goddess dressing to accompany the fresh vegetables at the farmers market yesterday.
Even though I typically serve salad with dinner, today, I'm mixing it up. Green goddess dressing is not only a great dip, but it also makes a fabulous salad dressing.
What ingredients are in this yummy green goddess dressing recipe?
- Vegan buttermilk (oat milk + 1 Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar)
- Non-dairy unsweetened, plain yogurt
- Lemon juice
- Extra chives for garnish (optional)
Although dried herbs may replace fresh herbs, I suggest using fresh herbs whenever possible. The general rule when using dried herbs instead of fresh herbs is to use half the amount of dried herbs than fresh herbs.
How to make vegan buttermilk and make the dressing
To make vegan buttermilk, add apple cider vinegar to plain, unsweetened plant-milk and allow to sit for 10 minutes to curdle.
Once curdled, add all the ingredients to a high-speed blender, and blend until smooth. Next, refrigerate until completely chilled and garnish with chopped chives or a favorite herb of choice.
