How To Make Green Goddess Dressing

I love love love creating recipes like this All-Purpose Creamy Green Goddess Dressing. It’s detoxifying, delicious, and multi-purpose all in one. First off, I have always been a creamy dressing kind of a gal. This can sometimes lead to a healthy salad turning unhealthy very quickly. Do you feel me? So my inspiration for developing a healthy + creamy dressing stems from my love for slathering veggies with delicious sauce. Which also brings me to the fact that I have used this dressing as a dip SO MANY TIMES because it tastes great both ways.

Traditionally, cilantro takes the cake when it comes to green goddess dressing, but I know some people have a strong preference for or against this herb. I was at a crossroads when deciding whether to make this dressing with basil or cilantro. I did try both and they were each delicious in their own way. However, I tend to sway more towards the basil direction, so that’s what I did. Feel free to substitute cilantro if you would like!

Whipping up a batch of this green goddess dressing could not be easier. Simply prep your ingredients (we’ll get to those in a sec!), place them all in your food processor, and let it fly! Blend the ingredients until it’s smooth and creamy. If your green goddess dressing is a bit too thick, add olive oil by the tablespoon to thin it out a bit.

Now, can we just check out this ingredient list for this dressing really quick?!
