Five ingredients and a few minutes of your time is all it takes to make this easy and healthy Avocado Green Sauce—an easy and delicious way to add flavor to any meal! Made with fresh herbs and garlic.
Turn a mediocre meal into something scrumptious with this healthy and easy Avocado Green Sauce.
A flavorful sauce that’s incredibly easy to make and chock full of healthy fats thanks to the avocado and avocado oil (or olive oil). This sauce is Whole30-friendly, dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, and vegan-friendly. It’s a sauce for everyone, and it goes on everything!
My favorite way to serve this sauce is as a dip or topping for grilled meats! It’s an easy way to add incredible flavor to meats. In the Spring, and especially Summer, I’m all about simple and easy cooking; I also want meals to be flavorful so this sauce is the ticket. Other ways to enjoy this sauce is as a dip for raw, roasted, or grilled veggies, as a topping for various ‘bowls’ whether it’s Mexican or Mediterranean inspired, or as a garlicky salad dressing. It even makes for the most delicious chip dip!
Move over ranch, Avocado Green Sauce might just be your new condiment of choice.

Avocado Green Sauce ingredients
5 ingredients, not including oil and salt, is all you need!
- Olive oil or avocado oil – such as Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil or Olive Oil.
- Lime juice – from about 1 medium lime.
- Fresh herbs – a mix of parsley and cilantro is what I prefer, but feel free to use what you have on hand or growing in your garden.
- Garlic – one clove for kinda garlicky or 2 for really garlicky.
- Avocado – choose an avocado that is light softer to touch. Not real soft but just enough where it will blend well.
- Crushed Red Pepper Flakes – 1/4 tsp. for a subtle kick or a 1/2 tsp. for more of a kick.
- Sea salt

How to make Avocado Green Sauce
It’s as easy as it gets. In a food processor or blender, add the ingredients and pulse until desired consistency is achieved. I prefer it to be slightly chunky. If you prefer a more smooth-like consistency, similar to a salad dressings, simply blend on low.

How to store Avocado Green Sauce
Once the sauce is made, simply store it in a glass container or mason jar with lid for up to 5 days. The lime juice that’s added for flavor will also serve a dual purpose (due to its acidic nature) and prevent the avocado based sauce from turning brown.
