Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

This delicious multi-purpose avocado dressing will keep for 2-3 days covered and chilled.

Try it on can be used on almost anything, like leafy salads, sandwiches, roasted vegetables, barbecued meats, or fried seafood.

You can be flexible with the herbs depending on taste. Coriander, chervil and even soft mint can work really well, and use lemon or lime juice for tanginess and to stop the browning of the avocado.

Avocado Green Goddess Dressing - Twisted Citrus

Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

2 avocados, peeled, stones removed
1 lemon, juice of
1 cup (packed) coarsely chopped fresh parsley 
20 leaves fresh basil, about
½ cup coarsely chopped dill or fennel fronds
3 to 4 spring onions, coarsely chopped (whites and greens)
¾ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar (or more, to taste)
½ cup mayonnaise, commercial or homemade
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Peel and remove the stone from avocado, cut into chunks and drizzle with lemon juice.

Next, place avocado in a food processor with the herbs fitted with the steel blade.  Process until very, very finely minced.

Add oil and vinegar.  Process for just a few seconds longer, then transfer to a bowl or container. Stir in mayonnaise, and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Whisk until well combined.

Cover tightly and chill until use. 


Dreamy, creamy, smooth avocados are a “can’t live without,” in our books.   

That’s why we offer two different varieties - Hass and Reed avocados - so we can extend our avocado eating season as long as possible!

Hass avocados are the most common commercial variety in New Zealand, and for good reason. They have a lovely, silky, creamy texture. Green and hard when unripe, they slowly turn a dark green/black colour and soften when they are ready to eat.

Reed avocados are among the largest of the avocado varieties. They have a smooth buttery avocado texture and taste. Reed avocados remain green, even when they are ripe. To check for ripeness gently press the stem and if it depresses, it’s ripe! Don’t leave it until the whole fruit feels soft - by then it’ll be overripe.
