Introducing this week’s culinary highlight. I have tried making variations of the Green Goddess dressing many times over the years but none as good as this one.
It’s a landmark day folks. Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Turshen’s cookbook, It’s All Good, strikes again.
I would never have combined basil and coriander leaf, but in that mix of ingredients, it totally works. Even the resident fussy person likes it. And chose to dip his sausage rolls in it instead of tomato sauce, so that’s a massive stamp of approval.
It’s been used as a salad dressing, dip, sandwich spread and as part of a garnish so far.
I didn’t have all the ingredients in the house, so I tweaked it slightly. I only hope I can recreate the finished product.
It lasts a week in the fridge and is likely to become a kitchen staple. So good!
Green Goddess dressing
10 basil leaves
3 tablespoon chopped chives
2 tablespoon coriander leaf
1/4 cup Italian parsley
Leaves from tarragon sprig
2 spring onions, roughly chopped
1/2 ripe avocado
1/4 cup vegenaise or mayonnaise
2 tablespoons honey or xylitol
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
Juice of a lemon (approx 1/4 cup)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup water
sea salt and pepper to season
Er, Julia and Gywneth give step by step instructions (and you can google those if you want ’em!) but I just chuck everything in the blender, hit ‘BLEND’ and call it done.
