You don’t have to be a goddess to enjoy this dressing. And you certainly don’t have to be green. You just have to love a little tang, a hint of spice and a tad bit of sweet. This Green Goddess Dressing is not your average store-bought dressing. It’s super fresh and zingy, and satisfyingly creamy. So good, you’ll find any excuse to enjoy a salad morning, noon or night.
