Green Goddess is an earthy, herb-packed dressing with a tangy bite to it. The dressing is a delight drizzled over salads, chicken, fish or as a dip for crudites.
For this lighter version I swapped out the usual, fatty base of mayonnaise for light sour cream (Greek yogurt works too). The sour cream is combined with buttermilk, lemon juice, vinegar, dijon, scallions, anchovies, garlic and a trio of fresh herbs like parsley, tarragon and thyme.
With this powerhouse of flavors, the mayonnaise doesn’t stand a chance of being missed! The dressing doesn’t miss a beat, remaining rich and creamy.
Green Goddess dressing is the perfect vehicle for putting those herbs still springing forth from your garden to good use, before frost strips them of any and all usefulness.
Feel free throw in whatever herbs you have on hand including mint, cilantro, basil and/or chives in whatever combination your little heart can dream up.
Allowing the flavors to mingle overnight will produce the most delicious results.
