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.

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 another, 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!

Ingredients

Green Goddess Salad Dressing:

  • ¼ Cup Parsley, Packed (about 1 oz in weight)
  • ¼ Cup Snipped Chives, Packed (about 1 oz in weight)
  • 1 Cup Mayonnaise, I Actually Prefer Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
  • ½ Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar, or White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper,, if desired

Potato Salad:

  • 2 Pounds Baby Red Potatoes
  • 3/4 Cup Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Instructions

Green Goddess Salad Dressing:

  • Place parsley and chives into the bowl of a small 3 cup food processor. Pulse herbs until very finely chopped. 
  • Scrape down sides of bowl and add remaining ingredients. Pulse until all is well combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. 
  • Pour dressing into a container and cover. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Potato Salad:

  • Wash baby red potatoes and place them in a large saucepan, cover with cold water.  Bring to a boil over medium high heat, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until potatoes are barely tender.  
  • Remove from heat, drain, and cover with cold water to rapidly cool the potatoes. Allow potatoes to cool completely.
  • Drain potatoes and cut them into quarters.
  • Put potatoes into a large shallow mixing bowl. Add ¾ cup Green Goddess Salad Dressing and gently fold to thoroughly coat potatoes.
  • Spoon salad into serving bowl and garnish with green chives and parsley. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Recipe Notes

♥  This recipe for Green Goddess Salad Dressing will make approximately 1-2/3 cups of dressing and only ¾ cup of dressing is used for this potato salad.
♥  If you do not have Miracle Whip Salad Dressing and prefer its flavor, use a plain flavored mayonnaise and add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar, 1 teaspoon of sugar, and ¼ teaspoon of paprika.
♥  Green Goddess Dressing is best when made the day before serving it. This gives the ingredients time to “marry”.
♥  Potatoes typically absorb mayonnaise and oil based dressings over time. If making this salad several hours before serving, check salad for dryness at serving time and add additional salad dressing, cream, or milk as needed to moisten salad.
