Units Scale
  • 1/2 ripe medium avocado (50 grams) – see notes*
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion (green portion)
  • 1/3 cup torn flat leaf parsley (some stem is fine)
  • 3 Tablespoons torn leafy herbs (such as basil, dill, mint, and/or cilantro)
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1/3 cup canned coconut milk or light coconut milk (see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic or 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) or coconut aminos.
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional – 1 to 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, as needed (see notes)


  1. Place the avocado, green onion, parsley, chopped herbs, coconut milk, garlic, lemon juice, and optional tamari in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process until smooth and combined. Add salt and pepper and blend again. Season to taste.


Storage Tip – The dressing will thicken once chilled in the fridge.

Taste and Texture Tips – ​​Flat-leaf parsley is robust in both flavor and shelf life versus curly-leaf parsley. Add olive oil as needed if the dressing is too thick. It adds a bit more richness and thins the creamy sauce.

Substitutes – If preferred, ¼ to ⅓ cup creamy tahini may be substituted in place of avocado. It will create a slightly richer flavor and creamier consistency. However, it does help your dressing stay fresher longer versus using only avocado.
