Magic Green Sauce

One of 3 creamy, mouth-watering dips (hummus, muhammara and green dip) featured in the video below.


Dietitian Leslie gives this recipe to her patients. It makes a great dip, salad dressing, sauce, or marinade.


  •     1 avocado
  •     1 cup packed parsley and cilantro (combined)
  •     1 jalapeno
  •     2 cloves garlic
  •     Juice of 1-2 limes
  •     ½ cup water
  •     ½ cup olive oil
  •     1 teaspoon salt
  •     ½ cup pistachios


Pulse all ingredients – except pistachios – in a food processor until incorporated.

Add pistachios and pulse until mostly smooth (depending on what consistency you want).

Serve as a dip, spread, or sauce — or add additional water or oil to thin the sauce for use as a dressing or a marinade.

Watch Nurse Kathleen and Dr. Pisharody create 3 creamy, mouth-watering dips (hummus, muhammara and green dip). While the video shows them created to go with their Seedy Green Crackers & crudités (see separate video), these same dips could easily go with a variety of savory side dishes and snacks!
