Green Goddess Salad Dressing


For years green goddess salad dressing has held a strong reputation! From tossing with your favorite salad greens to dipping with raw veggies, it’s a classic recipe that holds numerous variations. From your creamy base of mayo, sour cream, yogurt or avocado to herbs stemming (pun intended) from tarragon, basil, chives and parsley, you can find a perfect combination for yourself. The recipe below is my personal favorite combination but by all means, play around with the ingredients until your desired outcome is reached!
