What is Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess Dressing is a creamy salad dressing that is typically made with mayonnaise, sour cream, and herbs. The dressing gets its name from its green color, which is typically achieved by adding green onions, parsley, and/or chives.

While the exact origin of the dressing is unknown, it is thought to have been created in the 1920s at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. The name “Green Goddess” is believed to come from the fact that the dressing is green in color and has a divine flavor.

Today, Green Goddess dressing is a popular condiment for salads and vegetables, and can also be used as a dip or sandwich spread.

Thanks to its versatile flavor and creamy texture, Green Goddess dressing is a staple in many kitchens.
