Vegan Goddess Dressing


Vegan Goddess Dressing is a luscious and dairy-free version of the classic Green Goddess Dressing. Bursting with fresh herbs, creamy tahini, and zesty lemon, it’s a flavorful addition to your vegan dishes. This versatile dressing can be used as a salad dressing, drizzled over roasted vegetables, as a dip, or as a flavorful sauce for pasta, wraps and sandwiches.

Vegan Goddess Dressing might sound like a relatively new addition to the world of salad dressings, but its roots trace back to the 1970s in California. Created at the legendary Good Earth restaurant in California, this dressing was initially made with dairy-based ingredients. However, as the world shifted towards more compassionate and sustainable dietary choices, the recipe transformed into the vegan delight we know today.

If you want to try another delicious salad dressing try my homemade ranch dressing. It’s not vegan, but it IS delicious.

If you’re looking for a copycat version of Chopped Leaf goddess dressing then reduce or omit the fresh herbs in this recipe.  Alternatively, you can reduce the herbs to suit your taste and omit any you don’t like.  
To make life easier, I often use a store bought herb blend made by lighthouse that is called Salad Dressing Herb Blend.  It contains all of the herbs in this recipe plus a couple more.  They are freeze dried (not dehydrated) so they instantly refresh in your recipes. It is very convenient especially when you don’t have fresh herbs on hand and don’t want to go buy a bunch of each variety for a simple dressing.
