You see, I had the best of intentions to do a little veggie cleanse starting yesterday. But then I had a mega craving for gnocchi and it all went out the window. So I’m starting fresh today and piling my plate high with healthy things like vegetables, salads, fruits and this green goddess dressing!
Now I know what you might be thinking! Isn’t Green Goddess Dressing usually loaded with mayo and sour cream? Not here. Not mine. I can’t get behind having all that in a salad dressing or dip. I need a little something that’s light, fresh and packed with flavor… which is exactly what this one delivers!
It’s another perfect condiment to have on hand for a dip, a sauce on grilled meats, chicken or fish, or a perfect dressing to throw into just about any salad you choose!
