Whatever happened to Green Goddess Dressing? [moved from General Topics]
I'm searching my cookbooks for something to inspire me for dinner tonight and stumbled across a recipe for Green Goddess Dressing. I've lived in Northern CA for most of my life and back in the 70s Green Goddess dressing was so popular.
What happened to it? I use to love that stuff!!!
It just went out of fashion. People got into Balsamics and others and it fell by the wayside. I do have a good recipe I can paraphrase if you are interested. I served it up as a sauce for poached salmon at a party once and people really liked it. All were askign what it was and for a recipe. They were really surprised when I said it was a homemade Green Goddess.
Here's a recipe I have:
Green Goddess Buttermilk Dressing
1/3 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. sliced green onions
1/4 c. chopped parsley
1/4 c. chopped watercress
2 t. lemon juice
1/2 t. dry tarragon
1/2 t. anchovy paste
1/2 c. regular or reduced fat mayonnaise
salt and pepper
In a blender or f/p, combine buttermilk, onions, parsley, watercress, tarragon, lemon juice and anchovy paste. Whirl until herbs are finely chopped. Add mayo, whirl just until blended. Season with s&p. If made ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to 10 days. Makes about 1 cup.
