You will love the fresh taste of Green Goddess Potato Salad. Ordinary potato salad gets a fresh and herbal update, when dressed with Green Goddess Salad Dressing instead of plain mayonnaise. The clean, tangy, herbal notes of Green Goddess go very well with many dishes!
Although Green Goddess is good any season, spring is the time I crave this dressing the most. I love the pale green color and its ability to elevate any salad or dish to company worthy status. Here, the simplest potato salad gets an extra special lift from Green Goddess Salad Dressing.
Why Does this Recipe Work?
♥ Potatoes are a very plain and slightly sweet vegetable. Green Goddess adds a lovely herbal flavor to the potatoes.
♥ The Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, and rice wine vinegar also work in concert to give a much-needed tangy balance to this dish.
Can I Substitute a Different Salad Dressing?
Yes… but please don’t. Just give Green Goddess a try. I promise you won’t regret it! But if you insist on changing to a different dressing, good choices to substitute for the Green Goddess Salad Dressing are ranch, blue cheese, and Caesar dressings.
If you have not yet tried Green Goddess, you have been missing out on one of the greatest classic salad dressing of all time. It takes very little time to make and actually is best enjoyed the day after making it. So, this is a perfect make-in-advance dish!
