Lanie’s Garden Green Goddess Dressing

I have been enjoying hosting luncheons for girlfriends in my new home. We find it’s more relaxed, healthier and more cost-effective than meeting at a restaurant. Homemade green goddess dressing, blended with fresh herbs from my urban patch of garden, has emerged as a new specialty. Since Greek yogurt has become a staple in my ‘fridge, my salad dressing recipe has evolved since last time I posted it. This is my updated recipe:

In food processor, blend until creamy green:
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 oz fresh basil, rinsed and patted dry (I loosely fill a regular-sized colander when I go to the back yard to pick basil, and that weighs in at 1 oz when I check it on the kitchen scale. Fresh basil at the market tends to be packaged in 1 oz containers.)
1/2 cup fresh parsley, rinsed and patted dry
2-3 scallions, whites + greens, sliced (I’ve substituted 1 large shallot, sliced.)
1-2 cloves garlic, smashed + chopped
2 anchovy filets, chopped (You can skip the anchovies, but this is the secret ingredient which gives a big impact in the dressing.)
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 – 1/2 tsp kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

Especially tasty on a BLT salad (February 2015 archives), spinach salad with cucumbers & berries & feta or even on fresh watermelon.
