Green Goddess Dressing

By Holly Darnell, RD

Green goddess dressing

Green goddess dressing is typically store-bought or had at a restaurant, but did you know you can easily make your own that tastes just as good yet is also much healthier? Rather than suspect oils and processed ingredients such as preservatives and emulsifiers, you’re going to use the best natural ingredients for a marvelous green goddess dressing or dip.

At a San Francisco hotel (the Palace) in 1923, this recipe was invented for a well-known actor (George Arliss) who stayed and who was starring in the play The Green Goddess. It used to served over canned artichoke, which was considered a delicacy at that time, and used tons of mayo. By the 1960s, it had made its way into a bottle on grocery shelves. By the 1980s, you’d find green goddess dressing at more self-serve salad bars.

While a better version of green goddess stays on the menu at The Palace Hotel even today, you can whip up your own dressing. Learn how below.

Key Ingredients

A good dressing, of course, needs good fats for the right consistency as well as creating some satiety. In this green goddess, we go with two long-time favorites — avocado and olive oil — alongside Greek yogurt, which also will add some protein to the mix.

For flavor and plenty of that light green color, we add several herbs: parsley, dill, cilantro and chives. These will be pulsed up in the food processor.

You also want some tartness in a good dressing, so here both lemon juice and apple cider vinegar help accomplish that. We recommend that you try our Herbal Cider Vinegar tincture for an additional herbal infusion.

Garlic, sea salt and black pepper are also important elements to complete the flavor profile. And to complete the nutrition profile, Multi Collagen Protein is also used for some skin, gut and joint benefits.

Speaking of nutrition facts, the macronutrients in each 126 calorie serving are top-notch: 6 grams of carbs, 11 grams of fat and 2 grams of fat.

How to Make Green Goddess Dressing

While there are 13 ingredients, this one is a cinch. In a food processor, add in the garlic, avocado, yogurt, parsley, dill, cilantro, chives, Multi Collagen Protein powder, sea salt, pepper, lemon juice, vinegar and olive oil.

Pulse until well combined. Use immediately as a salad dressing or a dip for freshly cut veggies. What's not being using, scrape into an airtight container and place in the fridge. Use within five days.
