To say Green Goddess is my favorite salad dressing is an understatement! I absolutely love this dressing… and not just on salad! It also makes a wonderful dip and sauce.

This dressing is so simple to make and is even better made the day before you serve it. Just a few pantry ingredients plus fresh herbs and lemon make this delicious salad dressing.

So… this is how easy this classic dressing comes together:

Recipe Notes

♥  The classic presentation for Green Goddess dressing is a salad of romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and cucumbers. A large portion of fresh crab meat is mounded in the center and the dressing is served on the side.
♥  Variations of the salad include substituting cubed or chopped chicken or turkey for the crab. Salad greens can be romaine, curly endive, escarole, and chicory. Other green vegetables like garden peas and asparagus can be added to the greens.
♥  Green Goddess Dressing is best when made the day before serving it. This gives the ingredients time to “marry”.
♥  This dressing is very thick. If a pourable dressing is desired, add half and half or whole milk to the dressing until the desired thickness is achieved. Be sure to check the seasoning and adjust as needed.
♥  Store in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
