Green Goddess Dip
When it comes to salad dressings, I’m pretty sure I’ve proclaimed my great love for all things ranch many times over the years. Though, I swear I have other favorites! And Green Goddess dressing is most certainly towards the top of my list. I just love this slightly creamy dressing packed with fresh herbs.
Green Goddess dressing is typically made with mayo, sour cream, and lots of fresh herbs. For this veggie dip, I opted for plain Greek yogurt (and a little bit of mayo). I love the tangy flavor it adds and the added boost of protein. It just seems nutritionally better for a dip where you are likely to eat a larger quantity compared to just a drizzle on a salad.
I’ve seen a lot of different versions of Green Goddess dressings or dips made with many different combinations of herbs and some even with avocado blended in. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer for what combo of herbs you want to try in this dip. I used parsley, cilantro, and chives. Seriously though, you could also add basil, tarragon, or some avocado. Any combination of these glorious herbs will probably be delicious! For an added touch of freshness, don’t forget the fresh lemon juice!
This is a great dip to serve with a tray of fresh veggies at your next gathering!
