What You Need To Make Green Goddess Dressing

  • Blender – a food processor will work but a blender will get it smoother
  • Green onions – aka scallions
  • Fresh herbs – parsley, dill, cilantro, chives, tarragon
  • Sour cream – you can also use Greek yogurt
  • Garlic – fresh is best!
  • Lemon juice – or apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper


What? No Mayonnaise?

Yup, no mayo! First, I’m not a big fan of mayonnaise. Most mayo is made from soybean oil which has inflammatory properties and is not good for keto – or anyone, really. The olive oil mayo is marginally better so if you’re going to use mayo, use that. Is mayo even keto?

Second, mayo is gross. Don’t hold back, Jenn! Yup, gross. It’s basically whipped oil. Yum. Sure, it’s dairy-free, and if you’re looking for a dairy-free recipe, swap the mayo for the sour cream.

Honestly though? I love the tang of the sour cream. It adds plenty of creaminess to this herb salad dressing recipe and none of the oil. Try it both ways and decide which you like more!

How To Make The Best Keto Salad Dressing Recipe!

  1. Clean the green onions and garlic, rinse and shake dry the fresh herbs.
  2. Pop everything into the blender and pulse it until it’s smooth.
  3. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste, and that’s it!

Salads, Dips, Dressings, Marinades and More!

If you’re used to commercial dressings or even restaurant versions like Panera’s Green Goddess Dressing, are you in for a treat!

This homemade salad dressing is so fresh, so lively, and so gosh darn good, you’ll put it on everything! Here are some of my favorite ways to use it:

  • as a keto salad dressing
  • as a dip for fresh veggies
  • drizzle it over fresh avocado
  • as a marinade for chicken or shrimp
  • as a dip for air fryer grilled chicken or other meats

CHef Jenn’s Tips To Make The Perfect Oil-Free Dressing

  • Use full-fat sour cream for the best creamy texture
  • I like using a combination of herbs including dill, parsley, and cilantro. But use what you’ve got and what you like. You need 1/2 cups of packed herbs, so mix and match!
  • A wee bit of fresh garlic and the squeeze of lemon really brighten up this recipe

How Long Can I store This Keto Green Goddess Dressing REcipe?

It’ll keep in the fridge for up to a week. Sadly, it won’t freeze. But the good news is that this recipe only makes about 1 cup so it’s not so much that you can’t use up with a few salads.

What is Green Goddess Dressing?

Green Goddess salad dressing is a creamy and herb-filled dressing. A hint of garlic and fresh herbs makes this a lively dressing perfect for just about any kind of salad.

Is this a healthy Green Goddess Dressing?

Yes! With very few carbs, no ultra-processed ingredients, no soybean oil, and no funny thickeners, it’s about as wholesome as you can get! Plus, the herbs are packed with nutrition so it’s good for you on all levels!
