Green Goddess Salad Dressing

My friend Kary at My Farmhouse Kitchen recently mentioned that she had a salad with Green Goddess dressing and that it was very good. I realized that I had never eaten it before. I made it and I don't know what took me so long to discover this wonderful dressing.

It was perfect timing because all of my herbs are overproducing and this is the perfect recipe to use bunches of them. I cut lots of chives, parsley, dill, basil and tarragon.

Add a couple of anchovies and no, you will not taste them in the final product. They only enhance the flavor.

Saute' a small onion and 3 diced garlic cloves until beginning to soften.

Add 1 cup of mayonnaise , 1/2 cup of sour cream and 3 tablespoons of white wine vinegar along with the fresh herbs and anchovies to your food processor.

Pulse until it reaches a smooth consistency.

This gives you about 3 cups of dressing.

Depending on the salad, this can be a meal in itself.

I made a salad with a couple different lettuces, red onion, radishes, hard boiled eggs, bacon, tomatoes and cheese.

A couple of spoonfuls of Green Goddess makes this a very special salad.
