This is a dressing I have been making for the Yoga Center Saturday buffets for a while now… And a new resurgence of retro recipes has made it popular and chic once again…
I make several different version of this dressing, with the pale green color being the common denominator.
GREEN GODDESS DRESSING
½ cup buttermilk ½ cup plain yogurt 3 tbs of white wine vinegar 2 tsp honey ¼ cup fresh spinach leaves ¼ cup fresh basil leaves 2 scallions, chopped A handful of fresh parsley, chopped a bit 2 tsp mustard – Dijon or grain mustard will do ¼ tsp salt A few grinds of black pepper 1 cup canola or olive oil
- In a blender, mix all the ingredients except the oil. Blend well and add the oil thru the blender cap while the blender is still running in a thin stream.
Use it to dress your salad or as a dip for crudités… if you’re using specifically for crudités, I may blend also 4oz of cream cheese to make it thicker.
