Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess Dressing is a beautiful minty colored green blast from the past made with plain Greek yogurt, buttermilk, Duke’s mayo, chervil, chives, anchovy, tarragon, lemon juice, and freshly ground pepper. It’s perfect for your Springtime freshly made salads.

It has been said in the past that Green Goddess Dressing’s origin points to the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in 1923 when the hotel’s executive chef Philip Roemer wanted something to pay tribute to actor George Arliss and his hit play, The Green Goddess.
