This dressing is made with a creamy base of Greek yogurt, with lots of basil and parsley. It’s fresh and tangy with a nice bright flavor. Making it from scratch only takes 5 minutes in your food processor!

What does it taste like? I think of Green Goddess as a very strong Ranch dressing. Ranch with all the herbs! There’s a hint of garlic and citrus. Dill gives it a fresh bright taste. Green onion gives it an earthy contrast to the fresh herbs.

GREEN GODDESS DRESSING SUBSTITUTIONS

You can substitute a lot of the ingredients in Green Goddess dressing but it should always include a creamy base, lemon juice, and lots of fresh green herbs.

Also, consider using herbs like mint, dill, tarragon, or cilantro. Furthermore, try spinach and kale. As well, you can use green onions or chives.

You can use mayonnaise and/or sour cream instead of Greek yogurt.

Finally, if you don’t mind anchovies try them or even drained and rinsed capers.

HOW TO MAKE GREEN GODDESS DRESSING

I prefer to mix this together and allow it to sit in the refrigerator for a few hours. However, in a pinch, you can make and serve it right away.

To make, simply blend all the ingredients together until creamy, smooth, and green with pretty little flecks of herbs.

    I like all of the herbs and that there isnt salt. I substituted vegan mayo for the Greek yogurt. I also added about a tablespoon of honey to give it a bit of sweetness.
