This green goddess dressing is the perfect combination of healthy and delicious that you will find. The tang from the Greek yogurt and lime juice pair well with all the veggies and herbs that give this dressing its beautiful green color.
The other night, we went on the first date night we have had in probably 3 months. We have a brand new restaurant in town and we wanted to try it out.
We ordered our appetizer and our food, and of course, I got a salad to go with it. Since this restaurant has delicious homemade foods, I decided to try one of their most popular salad dressings — Green Goddess dressing. Man oh man was it full of flavor!
I knew after one bite that I would have to come home and recreate this delicious dressing for you my beautiful readers!
The Beauty Behind Green Goddess Dressing
The one thing I love about Green Goddess dressing is that it is so versatile, meaning you can use pretty much any green veggies you have on hand to make this.
For this particular recipe I used cilantro, parsley, green onions, jalapeño, lime, and then some spices as well as lime and olive oil to really bump up the flavor.
I don't buy dressings or sauces from the store anymore. Ever since I learned how easy they are to make at home, I just make all of those things homemade.
I love that I can control what's in them and they always have so much more flavor.
In fact, here are a few of my favorite dressings and sauces I have made in the last few years —
- Poppyseed Dressing
- Rafferty's Hot Bacon Dressing
- Olive Garden Salad Dressing
- Homemade Ranch Dressing
- Yum Yum Sauce
- Pizza Sauce
- Sweet and Sour Sauce
- Homemade Eel Sauce
- BBQ Sauce
- Enchilada Sauce
- Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
As you can see, I am pretty adventurous in the kitchen and will keep making my own sauces and dressings to share with you! What about you? Do you like making your own sauces and dressings?
Green Goddess Dressing
This green goddess dressing is full of herby flavor and is one of the healthier dressings you will eat.
- 1/2 bunch of parsley
- 1/2 bunch of cilantro
- 1 cup of greek yogurt
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, smashed
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (optional)
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of pepper
- Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until well mixed together. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.
- You can lessen the amount of lime juice to one lime if preferred, but I like the tart flavor of the lime juice to cut through the yogurt.
- Transfer to an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to one week.
