Green Goddess Dressing

A generous coworker of mine recently brought in a variety of herbs from her garden to share with whoever wanted a few. No longer having an herb garden of my own, I grabbed some basil, chives, lemon balm and oregano. Faced with a glut of CSA lettuce, I used them for dressing.

I think that real Green Goddess Dressing has anchovies in them, but I don’t care for them. And I subbed lime for lemon juice. But other than those changes (that account for 50% – 66% of the ingredients, depending on whether you’re counting the anchovies) it’s totally legitimate Green Goddess Dressing.

Hubs ate most of it as a dip for potato chips, but I did have a little as a sauce for this funny taco, made from a lettuce leaf and strip of bacon.

Green Goddess Dressing

  • 1/2 cup herbs (use whatever you have)
  • 3 T mayonnaise
  • Juice of one lime

Throw everything in the food processor and pulse until herbs are chopped and all is well blended. If it’s too thick, splash a little olive oil in. Too thin, add more mayo. No exact science here.
