This green goddess salad dressing is inspired by many of the flavors that can be found in Thai cooking, as well as TikTok. Lol.
When made into a salad (which is what I share in the recipe card below), it’s like a super fresh and flavorful slaw that could be eaten all on its own or added to all sorts of things.
I topped a veggie burger with this green goddess salad and it was divine.
You could also use just the dressing for lots of other things like a sandwich spread, dip for crackers or pita, or smeared on top of a steak or a baked chicken breast.
As the name suggests, this is made with lots of delicious green ingredients, including basil, mint, cilantro, spinach, chives, and lime juice.
Green goddess salad dressing is VERY easy to make—you throw everything in a food processor or blender and puree. The final texture is like a thick smoothie.
As I mentioned, the green goddess salad dressing is great all on its own, but if you want to serve it on top of something (or as a side with a main dish) here are a few suggestions:
Green Goddess Salad Dressing
a quick and easy vegetable-packed salad dressing
- 6-8 basil leaves
- 8-10 mint leaves
- ¼ cup cilantro handful
- 3-4 chives
- 1 cup spinach leaves
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 shallot
- 1 lemon juice only
- 1 lime juice only
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ½ cup cashews raw
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- sea salt
For the salad
- 12 ounces shredded cabbage kale slaw
In a food processor (or blender), add all the ingredients for the dressing.
Puree as smooth as you can get it.
Season well with salt.
Toss the cabbage kale slaw with the dressing so everything gets coated.
For the fresh herbs, you don’t necessarily have to use these EXACT measurements. But I wanted to give you an idea of about how much of each to use. If needed, based on what you have or your taste, you can alter these slightly.
