Surprisingly, we liked the flavor of dried tarragon instead of fresh in our Green Goddess Dressing recipe. Its milder flavor mingled better with the dressing’s other ingredients, as long as it was hydrated in lemon juice and water first.

For the creamiest texture and best flavor, we prepared the dressing a blender.

To appreciate the full flavor of this rich dressing, drizzle it over chilled wedges of mild iceberg lettuce or leaves of romaine lettuce. A blender yields a brighter, slightly more flavorful dressing, but a food processor will work, too.
