New and improved: creamy green dressing The original recipe is said to have contained mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, tarragon vinegar, anchovies, and a whole garden of fresh herbs: scallions. green goddess dressing This dressing was created in the 1920s by the chef at San Francisco’s Palace Hotel in honor of actor George Arliss, who was appearing locally in a play called “Green.

I’ve always had a weakness for green goddess dressing. It has that creamy appeal that ranch dressing also has, with the heady flavor and fragrance of fresh tarragon, which. To make dressing, add 1 tablespoon lemon juice, dried parsley, the ranch dressing, and a pinch of pepper to a small bowl. Stir the herbed ranch dressing. Ranch dressing is an American salad dressing usually made from buttermilk, salt, garlic, onion, mustard, herbs (commonly chives, parsley and dill), and spices (commonly pepper, paprika and ground mustard seed) mixed into a sauce based on mayonnaise or.

This is for the new and improved “Joe” out there. Pocket pita “Joe” is easy to make, easy to eat, a little bit. Green Goddess dressing has the most perfect name ever, because if ever there was a salad dressing that deserves to be called a goddess, it’s this one. Because it. Yes, really!

This ranch dressing is made with Greek yogurt and thinned out with a bit of water. It doesn’t add any fatty buttermilk or other hidden ingredients, and yes, tastes extremely good without them. The key to a great ranch dressing is all the seasonings and spices, so make sure to have these on hand, you don’t want to skip any of them. Like Ranch, green goddess dressing is a child of the 20th Century. My parents were members of the Green Goddess Generation.

That is truly the Greatest Generation.

  • My mom used to make what she called Green Goddess dressing and it was nothing like this. She made it with a blender using mayonnaise, garlic salt, and lots of raw green onions. We would wake up in the morning after eating this with tons of onion breath.

  • It’s funny, I’ve never heard of this before until just now. Did this used to be more common than it is now? Can you order it in a restaurant?

  • Hi Sam is it? I just found your channel and I like the vids. Tell me I’m not crazy but, can’t you make Green Goddess with avocados? I swear I saw that somewhere. Thanks. New sub. ��

  • Hi! This is the first Green Goddess dressing that I’ve seen that doesn’t have avocados! What can I replace the tarragon with,? as I don’t care for it!

  • thanks so much meg I used this last night as a dressing it was so amazing thankyou one om favourite dressing is a dijon mustard with balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper

  • This was big in the hippie days (60’s and 70’s) but then evangelicals objected to anything pagan and restaurants got scared of losing customers.

  • My favorite summer salad is just Romain lettuce with some iceberg, carrots, strawberries, walnuts, Mandarin oranges, blueberries and whatever fruit you want to throw in. And with that you don’t actually need any dressing and I feel so healthy after I eat that.

  • I love love love green goddess dressing! My store rarely has any, so I have to stock up. I don’t like dressing that can sit on shelf for years. I now know how to make fresh. Bet its amazing. Yeah!!! Thank you for this vid.

  • Oh boy this looks great! You know, when I’m having a downer of a day, I can always depend on you to cheer me up. You have THE best smile and one cannot be down when listening/watching you Mary. Thanks again!

  • A wonderful San Francisco dressing. I’ve really missed having that wonderful taste in my life. Thank you Chef John. Looks sooo good. Now I can enjoy it again.

  • One thing I will say about this other than the fact it is fantastic is that it loves peppers, like all of them yeah if roughly chopped like relish even bell pepper but for me, the best bet are Seranno (2) or Scotch bonnet (2) for very hot and “Frankly rather sadistic” variants of this. I just made the latter and my boyfriend came up with the name. one of each is “Hot” or “I mean… it will not kill you” respectively I like the way he names stuff, what does he call me? (Content removed by the YouTube) The Safty Union Union Safe be safe. Sexy yeah?

  • Thanks Chef John. Love the fresh herbs addition to this dressing. California styled Green Goddess dressing substitutes mashed avocado for mayonnaise (same portion amount and is healthier and makes dressing even more green), and does not include lemon juice. (So as to distance it from Caesar dressing). I am going to try your recipe this weekend…thanks!

  • Hello! I am the same as the previous follower, I detest anchovies, plus tarragon, what can I substitute or can they be left out all together?

  • Another 1970s favorite in the kitchen was Green Goddess dressing (it and Thousand Island ever wonder why Big Macs have such a sauce?) were the tastes of the day.

  • THANK YOU! This was a childhood favorite. I was a weird kid in the ’70s who liked dipping raw green beans and red radish roses in this delicious concoction. And I have rarely seen it since.

  • Laura, the process of straining the water out of microwaved cauliflower seems quite cumbersome. I saw another video that used stove cooking at low-medium heat to do the same thing. What are your thoughts on that?

  •  I love your channel and have request, can do popeyes chicken and waffles strips version way better, plus dipping sauce go with it.

  • Hey Chef John, nine times out of ten you won’t read this, but just a quick request, your videos are becoming more and more complex. I think some of us would appreciate if you threw a couple more simple recipes now and then, you know.. things that are just more commonly eaten nowadays. Nonetheless I love your videos, and I hope you consider my advice.

  • Talking about awful stuff in store bought dressings from the guy who uses tons of Japanese KewPie mayonnaise that lists Monosodium Glutamate as a major ingrediant. Hmmmmm?

  • “I’m gonna assume it was a goddess who gave birth to the heavens and earth.”
    Hear, hear! Blessed be. )O(
    Also, this looks like a fantastic salad dressing/dip. Will definitely have to try it.

  • Hi Sam. I was not a fan of that store bought one at all but what you just made could be the best ever. I love anchovies! Thanks for sharing.:)

  • Terrific work guys. I’m amazed Green Goddess isn’t more prevalent at restaurants but I order it as much as possible. And you’re absolutely right about store-bought salad dressings being inferior to fresh made. Somewhere along the line all the bottled dressing makers started putting xantham gum in their products. It gives a gloppy snot-like texture that yields a very unpleasant mouth feel. Thanks for putting a spotlight on a great dressing.

  • Not that fat is bad… Google the latest research… But isn’t sour cream a fat? Ha. Great recipe no matter what. Thank your mother for us.

  • Hi Sweet Friends, This is one of my all-time favorite salad dressings!! It’s so easy to make and is delicious topped on a iceberg wedge salad as a change of pace from Ranch or Blue Cheese. Love, Mary

  • Does anyone know if I can substitute the anchovies with something? I have no problem with anchovies but my boyfriend is allergic to fish:( (he’s not allergic to shellfish or shrimp though)

  • What kind of mayonnaise did you use? I just wanna know if there would be a taste variation. Sorry if this was already asked. Love you guys!!

  • I am 11 and I wear smoky eye makeup and eyeliner but I luv u guys and anyone what to give me tips on good eye liner wing and yes I am 11

  • I was eating crinkle cut carrot slices and with green goddess dip while watching this. Its so good if you haven’t tried it then you should.

  • Hi Mary:-D
    All the ingredients sound like they would make a wonderful dressing, except the anchovies. There are very few things I won’t/can’t eat, and that’s one of them. And I love fish! I’ve tried several times and just can’t go it.:/ The rest of it sounds like a delicious combo!
    Love & prayers <3 <3 <3

  • As someone who loves cilantro, I want to try using part cilantro and part parsley.
    I can’t wait to make this!!!!��
    Thank you ��
    It is so pretty!

  • how about you start real diet not some bullshit fancy newage american diet? proper dieting is about properly counted macros and calorie intake, not some 17day eat 500kcal loss 5000kg and stay unhealty? just a hint

  • Why low fat youghurt? Fat is not bad for you. When they remove the fat they replace it with other stuff that isn’t great so it’s better to just stay with the natural product.

  • hey meg!! Im new to your channel and LOVING all your recipes!! so many good and yummy ideas….I have looked through all your old and new videos… I would love to see a some what healthy Mac and cheese recipe! my kids love Mac and cheese (what kid doesn’t?) I would love to see your version on it:)

  • Has anyone ever made you so excited to make their recipe as Laura!!! She is so hype and now I’m hype! Green goddess goodness coming up!

  • Hey u asked what kind of salad u like the most I love my salad because I have 5 kids and 3 of them are super picky but all of them love it this salad is especially good for picky eaters because u can add whatever u want to it so I do some lettuce I like to use all diffrent types and a tiny bit of parsley with some cute cucumbers and black olives with some cute tomatoes and cherry tomatoes then I sprinkle a little bit of monzarella cheese in it and then some cheddar and I add a little bit of taco seasoning and then I use the original hidden valley ranch and it is delicious for me and my kids

  • I made up my own dressing recepie that I’ve used for ages it is: balsamic vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard, honey, cinnamon, salt, pepper, lemon juice-please try it it is amazing��

  • I remember this used to be a popular dressing but you don’t see it anywhere. Never tried it but it looks really good and I’m a big tarragon fan. Thanks for the recipe!

  • Hey! I’m NOFIWORKS and I have a really cool crafting Chanel! You should check it out! I’m having a giveaway if I reach 100 subs!����

  • Hi Meg, could you please make some Healthy but also cool and fun lunch ideas I know you have done a lunch alternatives video but it would be awesome if you could do the above:)

  • I make a honey vinegar dressing to add to an chicken apple pecan salad. Favorite lunch and I always make it when I’m hosting a lunch at my house.

  • Yeah because your first comment screamed American. I just think this wefazuw was giving a good piece of advice 😉
    And you don’t live in Europe, you don’t know how that is, so please don’t judge, it is considered rude in Europe.

  • My favorite is a spicy ranch made with cajun seasoning and ranch.

    Salad: Hearts of romain/ Sauteed peppers,tomatoes, onions and diced chicken with a little butter. top everything with cheddar cheese

  • I love making an avocado dressing. I just mash up an avocado and add olive oil, lemon, and S&P. Sometimes I’ll add a little yogurt. It’s a healthy way to have a dressing with a creamy texture. My toddler doesn’t like the texture of avocado pieces but she loves it mashed up as a dressing.

  • delicioso me encanta sus recetas pero no se ingles y me gustaría que en todos sus vídeos pusieran el nombre de los ingredientes para poder buscarlos después y hacerlas recetas gracias

  • Hi Mary �� oh yummy this looks soo nice ����. I’ve been searching for a different salad dressing…can’t wait to try this!!?
    Ps. I wonder what it’d be like over coleslaw as an alternative slaw dressing?
    Take care Mary xx

  • I cannot take it. Couldn’t get through the whole video because of how on the last word you say your voice goes higher and you drag it out…..

  • I love this channel and Laura is amazing but she needs to take a page out of Chef John’s ��! Her recipes are not easy to access.��

  • Hi Meg, my name is Andrea, I love your vids but I’m Mexican, and sometimes when you do Blueberries, raspberries and other foods I cannot get them here in my country. Can you do an episode using tropical foods please (like food that I can get here)

  • Chef John Don’t get me wrong. Great channel, great recipes…. but PLEASE enough with the voice inflection. It sounds like every sentence is a question. Love the videos but it makes it incredible hard to watch when you do that…

  • delicious! used yogurt rather than mayo, but all else the same except doubled. used as a dipping sauce for grilled brussels sprouts, am using the leftover dressing for salad dressing until it is gone.

    I remember green goddess being all over the place in the 60s and 70s, now it’s not found anywhere. will be making again.


  • Ever since I’ve been on keto, I’ve had to scroll past the carb filled videosbut that dressing will be fantastic and super keto friendly if served on chicken or veggies.

  • I tried many different ways to try and find the recipe, please share the recipe. As excited as you were about the dressing, I really want to try it.

  • Hi Mary, I love all your recipes and your style of teaching. Thank you. I’m wondering if I could replace the anchovy with a little soy sauce for the salty Unami flavoring? I hate all fish

  • You always present excellent videos. I love the food, naturally, but I seek you out because of your personality. I look for your recipes before I look for anything else. If I want to make something with shrimp I plug in shrimp with Laura in the kitchen. If I want to make meat loaf I plug in the word meat loaf with Laura in the kitchen etc. You are my go to chef. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into the videos that make them so enjoyable for us to watch. The bonus, naturally, is good food.
