I was introduced to Green Goddess many, many years ago. After just one bite, I knew this was my kind of dressing. It’s loaded with big, bold flavors with a bit of a tangy kick that’s so, so good on crunchy salads. Over time, this recipe faded from popularity but recently, has made a bit of a comeback, so, of course, I had to make my own version. I started out with the original recipe then changed things up a bit with the addition of sour cream.  If you’re wondering why it’s called Green Goddess, well, here’s a bit of history:

  •  Supposedly, the first time the dressing made an apperance was at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in 1923, when the hotel’s executive chef Philip Roemer wanted something to pay tribute to actor George Arliss and his hit play, The Green GoddessHe then concocted this dressing, which, like the play, became a hit.
