Course: Sauce
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Oil-Free, Vegan
Servings: 3 (1/3 cup servings)


  • 1 small avocado (or 1/2 large avocado)
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley (thick stems removed)
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil (stems removed)
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (about 1 1/2 lemons)
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. agave (or other sweetener)
  • 1/8 tsp. salt (more/less to taste)
  • 3 Tbsp. water to thin (more as need for desired consistency)


  • Puree all ingredients in a small food processor or blender until smooth (scraping down sides with spatula as needed.)
  • Add more water if needed, a little at a time, until it reaches your desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. (More salt, lemon juice, sweetener, etc.)


Recipe yields about 3/4 cup dressing.
Feel free to substitute dairy-free yogurt (plain & unsweetened) or silken tofu in place of the avocado to achieve the creamy base.
Try it as a flavor-packed veggie dip too - simply leave the consistency a bit thicker with less water.
