Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Said to have been President Eisenhower's favorite dressing, this concoction turns a green salad into a work of art. Add a can of tuna fish or chopped ham and buttered croutons to make a light meal.


1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 clove garlic, smashed
2 tablespoons minced scallions
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or tarragon vinegar
1 tablespoon anchovy paste
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes to let flavors combine. Store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

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!!
