Ina's Green Goddess Dressing

Ina's Green Goddess Dressing
Homemade salad dressings are more economical, easy, and more than anything- they certainly taste so much better than the pre-packaged bottled kinds. Don't get me wrong, there are some fantastic bottled salad dressings out there, but who wants to pay $5 for a small bottle? Not me- especially when you can make it at home effortlessly and can control the ingredients that goes in it.

One salad dressing I haven't found a good bottled version is this one- the Green Goddess dressing. I love the refreshing taste of the basil and zing from the green onions. It's such a creamy dressing, and I put it on everything- scrambled eggs, to dip my pizza crust in, on top of diced cucumbers and tomatoes, or use it as a vegetable dip (so much better than the kinds sold at grocery stores.) Another Ina winner.

Ina's Green Goddess Dressing

  • 1 cup Hellmann's mayo
  • 1 cup chopped green onions, white and green parts (6-7 green onions)
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic (2-3 cloves)
  • 2 tsp anchovy paste
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  1. Place the mayo, green onions, basil, lemon juice, garlic , anchovy paste, and pepper in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add the sour cream and process until just blended. (If not using immediately, refrigerate the dressing until ready to serve.)
