Nutritious Salad Dressing – Magic Green Sauce Recipe

In the past post I mentioned a very nutritious Quinoa salad flavored with this Magic Green Sauce.  I am providing a link to its origin, but will also post the ingredients and directions in this post, in case the link stops working at some point, and because I made some minor adjustments to suit my taste.

The first time I made this sauce I was concerned about it changing color, due to the use of avocados in the recipe. I made it very fresh just before mixing it into the quinoa salad and serving it.

To my pleasant surprise, the leftover sauce stayed vibrant green for a whole week, and I loved using it on pasta, as a dip with veggies, and in my garden salad.

This recipe yields 5 cups of sauce.

Please stay tuned, since my next post will include the Quinoa salad which pairs perfectly with this sauce, and makes a deliciously nutritious dish that fits any menu.

Nutritious Salad Dressing  – Magic Green Sauce Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados, peeled and pit removed
  • 1 cup fresh Italian Parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • 2 jalapeno, chopped (remove the ribs and seeds)
  • 5 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • juice of 3 limes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup olive oil ( I used 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/2 cup canola oil)
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup Pistachios (6 oz bag of shelled Pistachios)

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients (except Pistachios) in a food processor, and pulse until well incorporated.
  2. Add pistachios and pulse until all chopped to your preference. I liked mine to meet a grainy consistency, rather than larger chunks.
  3. You may also add more water or oil to thin it out if you wish to use it as a regular salad dressing. I used mine in its original consistency, and really loved it on Quinoa as well as on pasta.

Notes

This recipe yields 5 cups of sauce.
