Green Goddess Dressing / Dip

The hit of the summer on TikTok! Try this Green Goddess Dressing / Dip on your next salad, smashed potatoes, hummus dip, sandwiches, etc. This herbs-loaded sauce is nothing short of divine!


Green Goddess Dressing / Dip has evolved, with contemporary renditions often replacing the traditional parsley, tarragon, anchovies and scallions for basil, capers, spinach, and chives. What’s truly remarkable about this Green Goddess Dressing / Dip is how it captures that cheesy parmesan umami flavour without a trace of cheese. The secret to this culinary magic lies in the magical pairing of nutritional yeast and cashews, creating a parmesan-like taste perfect for those adhering to dairy-free and vegan diets. This sauce is a versatile staple you’ll want to keep in your fridge, ready to elevate a wide range of dishes!

Many Shades of Green

Green Goddess Dressing / Dip Salad

Okay, let’s keep it PG here; the green in this version of Green Goddess is a whole bunch of fresh basil, chives and spinach, well, capers, too. When I say a lot, it’s a full hand of each. The sauce is filled with greens, and barely any oil and mayo is used, making it a healthy dressing/ sauce. If you are vegan, substitute the mayonnaise for olive oil. I also suggest if you want to eat as a dressing with crunchy lettuce, like iceberg or romaine and don’t be shy! Add plenty of sauce; after all, it’s a healthy one!

If you intend to spread it in a wrap, chicken burger or sandwich, you can always add more oil and make it more liquid.

Polyvalent Sauce

This dressing is open to many variations!

Storage

You can easily keep the dressing/dip in the refrigerator for a few days, although its taste will lose its freshness and vivid colour over time. I would recommend adding a little tablespoon of olive oil on top of the dressing to prevent oxidation of the basil—this way, it conserves better.
