Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess Dressing


This dressing was created in the early 1920's by a Chef in San Francisco. The classic green goddess dressing is a blend of mayonnaise, tarragon, vinegar, anchovies, parsley, chives, scallions, and garlic.
recipes vary.
In addition to salads, it can be used for fish and shellfish.

Aloha Catherine,
My all time favorite dressing/dip is Green Goddess, I guess I’m showing my age…
I found a dry mix at Penzey’s Spice, but it’s not as good.
I do have a question for you, what is terragon?

Hello Kgirl, good to hear from you. I too enjoy it. Its a fine herb used alot in French cooking. Bearnaise sauce is composed with this herb. The leaf is greenish gray and it tastes a bit like licorice (anise flavor). This spice is used fresh or dry and is seen in dishes with eggs, chicken, fish and other cooking. I enjoy this spice alot especially when making a Bearnaise, once the sauce is done, I toss in some scallops and shimp and serve it over a steak (steak oscar) ....eye roll- yum. Or just make it without the seafood, the sauce is my fav. Now i'm in the ...Petals. › Cooking Terms › Green Goddess Dressing
