With 6 ingredients total, my Green Goddess Dressing is a cinch to throw together. Like all my recipes, it’s super easy! Simply place everything in a blender, pureé until smooth and you have the perfect keto salad dressing.
Easy Low-Carb Keto Salad Dressing
All you need to make this healthy low-carb salad dressing recipe is avocado, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, herbs de Provence, salt, and water. My boys adore it and I love that it’s an optimal recipe for the Ketogenic Diet. If you’ve gone low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) you’ll definitely want to take a look at my Keto Diet Recipes page for inspiration.
High-Fat Salad Dressing Made with Avocado
We eat Green Goddess Dressing over salads and use it as a dip too. When served with chopped vegetables like cucumber, celery, and radishes it’s a healthy low-carb snack for a summer barbecue or in the winter, a lazy football Sunday. We also eat this keto salad dressing over freshly picked greens from our garden.
Avocados the Perfect Keto Superfood
I love avocados because they taste incredible and are full of healthy fat. In fact, avocados are one of the richest foods on the planet with more than 70% of their calories coming from fat. Loaded with fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and folate avocados are not only delicious, they’re a fantastically healthy food. They also contain lecithin, a phospholipid that is very important for LCHF diets because it helps with the breakdown and absorption of fat.
Serving and Storing Green Goddess Dressing
If you want to thin out this dressing, just add a tablespoon of water at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Thick or thin, it’s incredibly healthy and delicious! I store this dressing in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Because avocados are best fresh, I don’t keep it for longer than this.
Green Goddess Dressing
- 1 avocado

- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

- Pour over salad greens
- Refrigerate remaining dressing in a glass jar for up to 3 days
How Do You Pick a Ripe Avocado
My method for determining if an avocado is ripe is to gently press the skin and feel how soft the flesh is. The softer the avocado is the riper it is. Hard avocados are not yet ripe and best left out on the counter to ripen.

Elena, a vitamin is out of my price range.. Am I safe in assuming that this dressing can be successfully puréed in a food processor or blender? Thanks.
Susan, thanks for your comment! I haven’t tried that so not sure :-)
Yes it will work in any blender. Give it a go

This is so easy and so tasty – thanks! It’s been hard to find good food recipes that fit within my restrictions – thanks so much for your effort Elana.

Susan Nelson says
How much is a serving?
Susan, thanks for your comment! Feel free to use as little or as much as you like :-)
I just made this and it is so delicious! i forgot to add the oil and it is still very rich and creamy and divine!
Brianna, I’m happy to hear this is so delicious!
I made this tonight, and it was very good. I did have to alter it a tiny bit, because of what I had on hand. I did one Tbsp of olive oil, and two tbsp of MCT oil. Instead of herbes de provence, I added a little bit of fresh dill, fresh chives, and some garlic powder. Kids loved it too!
and apparently I cannot read properly, because I accidentally left out the water. :) Which is why i added the extra tbsp of oil!
Colette, thanks for letting me know this was a hit with your kids!
Hi Elana, First I love your site and have tried many of your recipes and LOVE them. Wanted to let you know I made the green goddess recipe loved the taste but actually didn’t like it on my salad so I tried it with diced chicken (like chicken salad) and threw in some fresh dill. WOW!! Just wanted to give you and others another way to enjoy the Green Goddess.
Thanks for all your experimenting in the kitchen
Lara, thanks for letting me know this is WOW delicious!
Lynda Michael says
I am sorry but I have no idea what “herbes de provence” is. Thanks.
Lynda, if you click the highlighted text in the ingredients portion of the recipe you will be given that info :-)
Just made this dressing — it’s truly delicious. Thank you Elana for your amazing ideas that have restored me back to health and happiness!
Amy, thanks for letting me know this dressing is truly delicious :-)
We love avocados! we eat them almost every day be it in soups instead of croutons, guacamole or just plain slices, but I have never tried it on a salad dressing. I am sure this recipe will become one of my family’s favorites.
