With the crazy busyness of studying plus work and family life I haven't been able to get to cook and photograph many things in the day time. Hence the lack of recipe posts -sorry. I think about it often and check in here and on facebook to say hi and answer comments etc...

I will be back - one day ;) kidding , Im still here just lurking in the background.
Studying is going well and Im getting close to the end, about 5 - 6 weeks and Im finished -Eeek!
I will be studying 2 other short courses after that but much less work load so life will ease up a little - yay!
I have LOVED studying, I never thought I would like it that much but now Im sad to finish. Life always has ways of flipping things on its head and surprising us.

Anyway back to the recipe -   

So salad - this is one of many versions of green goddess dressing... and although I have never tasted the original, from the bounty of recipes on the internet I can say that everyone seems to have some version or another of beautiful green and tangy dressing. It is very pleasing on salad and makes a great dip.
So if your salad making and eating is in a funk then I suggest you give this a try.
Or just try it anyway cause its delicious!

Easy to Make

half a medium onion
1 garlic clove
1/3 to half a cup of olive oil
a handful of basil and coriander leaves (can also add parsley)
Half a large avocado
half a lime (juice)
half a lemon (juice)
- a tablespoon organic Mayo -
- spring onions/scallions - 

Start with the onion and garlic glove, blend
Add every thing else in the blender (except lemon/lime juice)
Blend until smooth
Add lemon and/or lime juice
Blend to incorporate
Season to taste

Dollop straight onto salad or place in a jar in the fridge (lasts 3 - 5 days)

  1. Thank you for this great recipe for salad dressing. I really appreciate that its vegan and its delicious too. I wish more people would try vegetables because eating too much meat and fastfood will take a toll on your body.
