Years ago, my Aunt Lois made

Years ago, my Aunt Lois made this dressing. I was only 10 or so and not interested in cooking or recipes. When I would go to a restaurant, I would ask for Green Goddess Salad Dressing, but no one ever had it and some had never heard of it. This captures my Aunt Lois' recipe spot on!! Thank you!!
