Original Style Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess DressingGreen goddess dressing was created in the early 1920s at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco for an event honouring actor George Arliss, who starred in the hit play The Green Goddess. With loads of grassy fresh herbs and a tang from the sour cream and lemon juice, this creamy dressing is delicious over butter lettuces, served as a dip, or drizzled on fish. Unlike modern versions, the traditional dressing does not contain avocado. This recipe makes 3 cups.

Ingredients:

4 anchovy fillets, rinsed, patted dry, and coarsely chopped
2 medium garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
2 cups mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 cup loosely packed fresh Italian parsley leaves*
½ cup loosely packed fresh tarragon leaves*
4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives*
4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula as needed. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper as needed. Refrigerate in a container with a tight fitting lid for up to 1 week.
