When it comes to dressings I always make my own and keep it simple. I have an olive oil, balsamic and Za’tar dressing that’s my go to, but I love to mix it up and try other concepts. Simply put, life is just too short to reach for ready made dressings when you can whip up a fab one in just minutes! This one packs a lot of herbs, but I’m telling you, it knocks it out of the park in terms of flavor, vibrancy, and nutrients!
In recent years I the Green Goddess dressing exploded and even recall buying a vegan one from Annies for years. Ironically it was brown and completely not the traditional GG dressing lol. The classic Green Goddess dressing was actually said to be created at a hotel in San Francisco around the 50’s and was comprised of mayo and anchovies. While I’ve whipped up a few different GG recipes, I’ve never used either and they come out so good!
The herb-flecked green goddess dressing is creamy and rich, with a tartly pungent edge from garlic, tarragon, and lemon juice.
If you’re hitting a wall with your salad routine, you have to try this Green Goddess Salad! If you love Green Goddess, but are not looking for a salad, be sure to check out this Chickpea Salad, Potato Salad, Burger and Green Goddess Dip! (It’s my favorite flavors if you can’t tell lol)
What I love about this dressing is like most, it’s quick and easy, packs color, flavor, but also nutrients, could pair well with just about anything, and the tarragon just puts the flavor over the top! What’s even more wonderful about my approach, is that it packs fresh spinach, minimal oil, and you can even throw in avocado if desired! Bonus, it’s perfect for any season, the arugula with fennel really pairs seamlessly with the dressing. Make it in bulk, throw in a wrap, add in a protein, the options are endless!
If you’re looking for a fresh modern nutrient dense salad, this is it! You have to try my staple vegan Green Goddess Salad!

Dressing can be used for a variety of dishes!
