    Wow, a recipe with avocado that doesn’t use garlic! This is a must try for me. It would make a fine veggie dip as well.

    Thanks!

    Here’s what my DIL Ashley (MaryJanesFarm food guru) had to say:
    This will keep in the refrigerator for about 3 days, if you don’t eat it sooner. 🙂

    and they dont call this ” green goddess dressing” anymore? I always loved that name. I dont have a blender or I’d try it. And avocados are very $$ around here too.

    So would could you substitute a non dairy nut milk plus maybe a tablespoon of vinegar for the milk, do you think?
