Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Don’t you just feel healthier looking at this photo? We had some herbs leftover from various recipes and I thought I’d make a yummy, fresh green goddess dressing. I searched the internet for a recipe and it turns out there are seemingly hundreds of variations out there. I basically combined several recipes to cater to the ingredients I had and the style of dressing I was looking for.

I used a 1/2 cup roughly chopped basil, 2 tablespoons chopped tarragon, and 1/2 cup roughly chopped parsley, since this is what we had. You can also see a clove of garlic hanging out up there as well.

In addition to the herbs and garlic, I added 2 green onions, 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1/2 cup of sour cream, 2 anchovy fillets, lemon juice, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. I placed everything in the blender and set it to puree.

Nice and green.

This dressing was a great way to use up the leftover herbs. It stayed fresh in the refrigerator for about a week and I enjoyed it on many a lunch salad.
