Very impressive and couldn't be simpler to make!!If you substitute nonfat yogurt for the mayonnaise you can eliminate almost all of the fat in this high-fat food while retaining the fiber potassium vitamin E B-vitamins folic acid and other nutrients. Fage (pronounced fa-yeh ) nonfat yogurt is very thick and creamy and will NOT interfere with other flavors. 1 tablespoon of mayo is 90 calories 10 grams of fat 5 mg cholesterol multiply them by the 1 cup (which has 16 tablespoons in it) called for in the recipe and you now have 1 440 calories 160 grams of fat and 80 mg cholesterol!! 1 cup of fage nonfat yogurt is a Total of 120 calories No fat No cholesterol and plus you get 20 grams of protein. I used the yogurt and kept the rest of recipe the same and it was delicious!! If you want to use chives in place of green onion you can and for those of you who don t want to deal with the messy anchovy fillets you can use Giovanni s anchovy paste. 1 hour of chill time was sufficient. Thank you Lisa! Your recipe is full of flavor!! Read More

I love avocados and green goddess dressing but this wasn't as tasty as I hoped. The buttery richness of the avocadoes was there and that was about it. The flavor was meh and didn't improve when slathered on shrimp greens or even crispy orange bell peppers. My search for a lower fat Green Goddess recipe continues... Read More

This dressing was easy and really yummy! I used sour cream instead of mayo and it was still thick so i thinned with Buttermilk till the consistency was right about 2 Tbs. This topped a romaine lettuce salad full of eggs warm bacon anchovies and roasted nuts -- perfect!! Read More

Taking the reviews into consideration the only thing I changed was the mayo. Instead of 1 cup I used 2/3 cup mayo and 1/3 cup sour cream. Man this is the BEST dressing...creamy flavorful no fishy taste. Just outstanding. Read More

MY BAD. I made this 'LITE'...As usual I put my own spin on this; but overall delish! Instead of all the mayo I used 1/4 cup lite mayo and 3/4 cup plain stirred yogurt. Chopped fine some celery in addition to the green onions and then added some fresh cilantro at the end. Let the flavours marry in fridge!OMG! Tasty AND HEALTHY Read More

A little messy to make but worth it for the great texture and flavor. Was very good. I improvised a bit by using more avocado more lemon and less mayonaise and it was still great. Read More

LOVE THIS DRESSING!! I made this with 1/2 mayo & sour cream-just the right consistency and texture. My hubby HATES anchovies, so I used anchovy paste & didn't tell him. He kept telling me he loved this dressing, but he said he he couldn't tell what I put into it. After 25 yrs. of marrage bliss I know when to keep a secret! Read More

Good recipe - I made some modifications. I left out the anchovies. I decreased the amount of mayo to about a little less than 1/2 cup and used reduces fat mayo. I increased the lemon juice to about 2 tbsp. and added a pinch of sugar to cut the tartness a bit. I also added some freshly chopped basil to it. It is a very thick dressing so you don't need a lot to cover the salad. I made it about 1 hour before I served the salad. I used it on a romaine salad with red onions, shredded carrots and chopped mixed peppers. Very good! Read More
