Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes



  • 1 large avocado pitted and skin removed
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves and stems, packed
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves and stems, packed
  • 1 jalapeno seeds and ribs removed (keep if you want spicy)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup roasted pistachios See notes


  • Add all of the ingredients to a food processor bowl. Pulse until smooth. 
  • Use this sauce on chicken, pasta, zucchini noodles, chip dip (it’s a bit guacamole-esk), with falafel, or whatever you’d like. 
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 7-10 days.


If using salted pistachios, omit the salt, and then season with salt to taste. The pistachios I used were unsalted.
If you want to use it as a salad dressing you can thin it out with additional water or olive oil.
