Chef John's Green Goddess Dressing

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"This creamy, herby, addictively delicious sauce is not only my favorite salad dressing, but is one of my favorite dips as well. You can of course tweak the acidity with more or less lemon, as well as play with the salt and pepper, but please do not change the trio of herbs. The way the parsley and chive play against the sweet tarragon makes this unlike any other herb dressing."

I liked it but I found the tarragon a bit overpowering. Perhaps it's more just a matter of personal taste.

Fantastic. The Tarragon / Parsley and citrus combo just slaps your 'buds with a big tangy-fresh hello. It's like eating the colour green while sipping on cream.

This sauce is absolutely divine!! I had to omit the anchovy as my husband is prone to gout and anchovies will bring on an attack almost immediately. But, even so, this was so amazingly good! Ke...

This was delicious! I made a trial version per the recipe, with the exception that I had to substitute white wine vinegar for the rice vinegar as I had forgotten to purchase it. I found it too t...

Made precisely as written, as chef John never fails me. Never. Out of this world. Next time I might add a couple chopped up anchovies.

Love it! Dip or dressing, dressing or dip.... so good (the secret is to make the day before serving so that the flavours fuse)

This is fantabulous! I could practically drink this stuff. I love the green color from all the fresh herbs and the whole family gobbled up salad and everything we served with this! A keeper r...

LOVE IT!!!!! I am currently using this as a dip for fries, and the family is gobbling it up. The kids will eat fresh herbs right out of the garden, so I knew they would love this. I did not have...
