Green Goddess Dressing

Homemade salad dressings are little culinary luxuries. Delicious, fresh and so flavorful! And the best part is that salad dressings are so easy to make. Once you start making them yourself you won’t go back to the bottle!

Green Goddess dressing is not named for it’s herb-infused delicate green color or the green onions so prominent in it’s recipe… but for the 1920’s play, Green Goddess.  Regardless, this wonderful herb dressing packs a big flavorful punch wrapped in a creamy texture!

Wonderful on delicate greens, such as Bibb lettuce or baby field greens, Green Goddess caresses each leaf with delightful flavor. It is the taste of Spring!

But don’t just use it on a salad. This dressing is luscious as a sauce drizzled over fish, chicken and vegetables.
I hope you consider making your own dressing. It is like making bliss!

    Thank you so much for sharing with us this great recipe. I love it that you can use it not only in salads! I make salads a lot, so I love your lovely version of this dressing.
    Have a terrific weekend.

    I love this dressing. I haven’t been able to find it here though. I am going to try this one. I know my tribe is hooked on your Mexican Explosion dressing. They just can’t get enough of it! It has gone on EVERYTHING, including strawberries. That was not such a hit though. I could imagine this on grilled fish though. Ok, who wants grilled fish instead of pizza tonight?!

    Yvonne, I happen to love your recipes and just tonight told my Husband at dinner that I’ll be making your French Onion Soup recipe this week.Finally, I’ll use yours and Tyler Florence (the man of my dreams) recipes and sort of mix and match. They both seem to be very familiar. Now getting back to Green Goddess Dressing…what can I say, growing up in the ’70’s this dressing was a sort of “ladies only” dressing, our special, treat yourself, to something divine and not too fattening dressing. I can’t wait to try this too! thanks again for your wonderful comfort food recipes, xxx tami

    You’ve jogged my memory with this one, Yvonne! I used to make this YEARS ago, as a young bride. I had totally forgotten all about it!

    BTW, I made your Mexican Explosion salad this week….YUMMO!!!!

    Green Goddess is one of my favorite dressings, I remember a chain restaurant years ago called Mr. Steak, their steaks were only so so but I loved their GG dressing. Thanks for the recipe Yvonne.

    You are so right about homemade dressing; it’s easy and delicious.

    Your photographs are always so beautiful. They make your posts even more delightful. The last photo of the dressing, herbs, and green onions is particularly beautiful in its simplicity.

    Oh my goodness, Yvonne ~ I’m feeling like a “Green Goddess” already*
    I’ll put anchovy paste on my list *
    wow… and after our onions and parsley get going, this should be the dressing our salad wears all summer ;o)
    *happy weekend to you*

    The name itself is SO enticing that you can’t help but know just how good it is.

    I am actually getting ready to go into the kitchen and recreate a leek tart Andrea and I made in France via Mastering the Art of French Cooking~ Julia Child. A salad would be such a lovely accompaniment.

  11. says

    Oh, YUM!!! So perfect for spring, too! This would’ve been PERFECT for my table last night when we dined on artichokes alfresco in Italy!!!
    You are such a blessing!!

    Love/hugs/blessings to you,

    I love this dressing, Yvonne. The anchovies are crucial to the flavor so should never be left out. I have a lovely head of romaine in the fridge that is calling out for a drizzle of this fantastic dressing.
