How to be Ultra Hip: Make Green Goddess Dressing

As hard as I try to avoid being totally basic, I must admit that I regularly succumb to the latest food trends. I can’t help it, I am a sheep! This particular recipe is one of those trends but I promise you, it is delicious and super versatile. In the past few years, there have been countless recipes for “Green Goddess Dressing” popping up on blogs and all over Pintrest. Who could resist that pillowy green cloud of homemade deliciousness? Even the much celebrated and criticized $200 smoothie tycoon Gwyneth Paltrow had a version in her cookbook!

I wanted to keep you all hip to the fads and share my version of the dressing. I am opting out of the whole “Green Goddess” thing because I am cool and different. 😉

Storage:
I keep the dressing in a regular size mason jar with a lid in the fridge. It lasts quite a while, at least a week but usually longer. If it keeps its green colour and doesn’t smell weird it should be good to go. I have not taken food safe either so use your own discretion! 😉
