Green Goddess Dressing

This is a recipe I shared years ago; perfect for this time of year 🙂

The first time I saw this dressing was on Food Network, it was a mayonnaise based salad dressing with fresh herbs, not the healthiest! According to the Food Network this was a popular dressing in the 70’s but my parents had never heard of it. Oh well, they liked it anyway! In case you’re wondering, my mother let it slip that the dressing has anchovies so Mike refused to try it. The silly thing is, anchovy’s add insane flavour and you can’t tell its fish! Oh well, good thing Mike hasn’t figured out the other recipes I add anchovies to!!!
