Green Goddess Dip

I’ve never tasted a Green Goddess Dip or Dressing that I liked. Soul Vegetarian has a pretty good one but other than that I’ve found most recipes to be pretty unappealing. I was surprised that, of all the places in the world, I found my favorite Green Goddess Dip/Dressing in a Paula Deen cookbook. I still can’t believe it, I’m flabbergasted as I write this. I also happen to have all the herbs for this dressing in my garden so it’s an incredibly cheap recipe to make if you happen to have a good herb garden.

3/4 cup Veganaise

1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk

3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

1 1/4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. I like to toss this with crisp salad greens or dip fresh veggies in it.

    This sounds delicious! I haven’t met a green goddess dressing that I didn’t like, but anything that uses Veganaise as a base is a winner for me. Sometimes I want to eat a whole jar of that stuff!
