Green Goddess Dressing

16 Jul

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 Godess 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


  1. 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.

    I’ll try this with some changes, and let you know how it comes out. It sounds great!

    Hi – as you may know, finding buttermilk here in Puerto Rico is not an easy task. Would milk with vinegar be an appropriate substitute for this recipe?


    KFC – Adriana, I don’t know where you live in PR, but I can find buttermilk easily at Grande/Isla Verde and at Costco. Even sometimes in Pueblo. But, if you’re having trouble finding buttermilk, the substitute I use is 1 cup milk + 1 tbs lemon juice, stirred well. I’ve used it many times to make buttermilk ranch dressings. Good Luck!!!
