Green Goddess Sauce

What is Green Goddess Sauce? It’s a fresh tasting sauce that you can basically eat with or on anything. It can be used as a salad dressing, dip and would be great as a sauce over chicken and fish. I first came across a modified version of the Green Goddess Sauce from the website Cookie & Kate (which I highly recommend you check out – she posts the most amazing vegetarian recipes!). Originally this recipe calls for mayonnaise and sour cream with your fresh herbs but yikes that sounds heavy! So like Kate and her recipe I opted to use Greek Yogurt instead making this version much healthier.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups of plain Greek Yogurt
1 cup loose parsley (I used Italian parsley)
1/2 cup of any mixed fresh herbs – sage, basil, tarragon, thyme, marjoram, cilantro or oregano (I did 1/4 basil and 1/4 tarragon)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove of garlic
1/4 tsp sea salt

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender or small food processor
  2. Blend until smooth
  3. Taste and add more lemon juice, salt or more fresh herbs as necessary.
