Appetite for Reduction’s Green Goddess Garlic Dressing – submitted by guest blogger Nancy Vanacore

My friend Nancy is one of the most awesome human beings I know.  She is a health nut, wonderful and sweet person.  The woman looks 40 and she’s 60!!!  Atleast I thought she was my age.  Anyway, I requested she submit to me her favorite Vitamix recipe.

Here it is: 


  • 2-3 average sized cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 C fresh chives
  • 1/2 C fresh parsley
  • 3 T tahini
  • 2 T nutritional yeast
  • 1 T miso
  • 1/3 C water
  • 2 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 t salt (I did not use salt in my dressing)


Pulse the garlic, the chives, and the parsley in a food processor to chop everything up.  Add the remaining ingredients and blend until very smooth.  Use a rubber spactula to scrape down the sides a few times.  Now adjust to your liking.  More alt, more garlic, you can thin the dressing with a 1 or 2 T of water.  Note, it will thicken a bit as it’s refrigerated, so if it appears thin, don’t worry.

Thanks Nancy, this dressing is to die for.  I will have a bio of Nancy on my guest blog section soon!

  1. I made this tonight and I was very pleasantly surprised. I just started the Eat to Live way of eating and it’s been really hard finding good dressings for my salads. Love this!

  2. you really ought to credit the original owner of this recipe: Isa Chandra Moskowitz, from her book “Appetite for Reduction”.
