Green Goddess Dip Variation

Love this dip but wish you could use it on a salad? No problem!

This same great recipe can be made into a salad dressing by adding just a little more olive oil.

Or if you prefer to thin out your dressing in an oil-free way, you can choose apple cider vinegar, a small amount of water, or your favorite plant-based milk if you prefer a milder taste.

Depending on how you choose to make your green goddess dressing, it will adjust the flavor somewhat, but this beautiful recipe will still have a wonderful fresh flavor.

FAQs About Green Goddess Dip

Have a few questions before whipping up this recipe? No problem!

I’ll try to answer a few here.

1. What does this green goddess recipe taste like?

This recipe doesn’t contain raw cashews, black pepper, coconut aminos, apple cider vinegar, or other ingredients that can be found in other variations so it tends to have a milder taste.

It does have a little bit of an herby flavor because of the cilantro and parsley, but it’s not overpowering.

And you can always start with fewer herbs or tahini and add a little at a time to adjust the flavor.

2. How much does this recipe make?

This recipe makes about 1 pint (or 450g) of dip. If you want to make vegan green goddess dressing you will end up with just a little over that because you will have to thin the dip to make it easier to drizzle or pour.

3. Are all green goddess recipes vegan?

Nope. The traditional green goddess recipe calls for non-vegan ingredients that include anchovy filets, sour cream, and mayonnaise.

So, to make sure the recipe is creamy and still tastes great without these non-vegan ingredients, white beans are used in place of the mayonnaise and sour cream.

The anchovy is then replaced with fresh herbs, green onion, and tahini.

4. Who created this recipe?

I was not entirely sure, but after doing a little research, it seems that the Green Goddess dressing recipe was created by a chef at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in the 1920s.

Now, who came up with the Green Goddess vegan dip recipe? Your guess is as good as mine.

But I’m sure glad they did because it was a great idea and the perfect addition to everything from raw veggies to sandwich spread.

Last Thoughts About This Plant-Based Green Goddess Dip
