This classic salad dressing includes mayonnaise, anchovies, vinegar, green onion, garlic, parsley, tarragon and chives. It can be prepared in a blender or food processor and is good served as a dressing for steamed artichokes, a seafood salad, or as a sauce over broiled fish. (If you don't have fresh tarragon, you can use 1/4 teaspoon dried, instead.)

4 anchovies was way too overpowering my family and friends agree that when I made it with 1 anchovy it was the best tasting. Read More

Green Goddess was my mother's favorite salad dressing and she got me hooked on it. After I could no longer find it in grocery stores I thought that wonderful dressing was gone forever. I have been delighted with this dressing every time I've made it. It brings back wonderful memories of my mother good times and family dinners. My friends have enjoyed this dressing and when I don't make it they ask me where it is in the selection of dressings at my house. This is most definitely worth the 5 stars I give it! Read More

This is very very good! It tastes so bright and fresh. I did alter the recipe: I doubled the parsley and chives and add garlic and cracked black pepper. They mayo has a strong flavor so I've found it's best to make it with 1/2 mayo and 1/2 plain yogurt. This is a great dip for carrots cucumber grape tomatoes and pumpernickel bread (I usually cut up pumpernickel bagels). Read More

I use lowfat mayo and the whole family loves it. I've never seen my fiance have seconds on salad before. We call it "Skinny Goddess" and it has become a staple. Hint: Don't mention the anchovies until after they go nuts over it. Read More

This was pretty good. I added a splash of milk to thin it out a touch. One thing: The description says garlic is included but it's not mentioned in the actual recipe. Read More
