"Altho its early origin is a matter of some debate, what we all came to eventually know as GREEN GODDESS salad dressing was first bottled & sold commercially by Seven Seas in the early 1970's. Named for its color, over time it became associated w/the use of avocado even if it didn't deserve the connection. Now true avocado salad dressings are called just that, but there's a large variety of them. I went searching for 1 I could "adopt as my own forever", but it wasn't so easy. It came down to 2 choices that were somewhat similar, so I decided to "blend" them & enter the result here so I don't have to do this again. This avocado dressing has a Tex-Mex flavor profile & works well for me. I hope it will for you as well. Enjoy!"

Very good dressing! I didn't have fresh lime juice and used 1 TB. of bottled. It was a bit tart, but still yummy on our lettuce salad tonight! Made for your football win 2016

Delicious! Easy to make and really flavorful. The dressing comes out a little on the thick side, but we like it that way. The only change I made was to add a little more ranch dressing mix and chipotle chili powder. Looks wonderful and tastes just as good as it looks.
