What exactly is Green Goddess Dip??

What exactly is Green Goddess Dip?? If you like Ranch Dressing, you’ll love this. It’s MEGA ranch! Everything you love about Ranch PLUS a little cucumber, carrot, fennel and parsley. This twist, takes the traditional flavors of classic salad dressing called Green Goddess removes the anchovies and mayo and adds some grated carrots and cucumber.

This Green Goddess Dip (garden style veggie) version is a little thicker than a traditional salad dressing and makes use of several herbs and veggies typically grown in my summer vegetable garden.

One pro-tip when home-making any dip or salad dressing?? Save the lidded container (like this sour cream container). It’s the perfect container for storing leftover dip.
