Green Goddess Dressing
This California classic should balance color and consistency with intense herb flavor. Avocado, a modern addition, makes this dressing too thick. Rely instead on herbs for color and flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
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. Our Green Goddess Dressing recipe uses a blend of mayonnaise and sour cream for its base and gets an essential flavor boost from anchovies. For the creamiest texture and best flavor, we prepared the dressing a blender.
