Green Goddess Salad Dressing – Ready in 3 Minutes!

I love basil, especially when in season. Every spring I plant a ton of basil in my garden. Think about ALL the homemade pesto that results from it! This year I had to use a few pots since I just moved to a new home and didn’t have the chance to build my new garden yet. Stay tuned for next summer!! I’m already planning out what I’ll plant and how much. I’ve been making this green goddess salad dressing for years and years. So finally, I’m sharing it with the world. This beautiful dressing not only adds a splash of colour, but it tastes AMAZING! It’s always very well received!

This green goddess salad dressing is not only delicious, but it is super easy to make! I just love an easy recipe that makes minimal mess. This recipe does not disappoint in either department.

Just toss all these wholesome ingredients into a high powered blender (I use my Vitamix) and give it a whirl. Process until smooth and creamy. You really can’t go wrong! It’s easy, delicious, contains no artificial ingredients compared to store bought dressings, and it really adds some beauty to your salads. Give it a try and let me know what you think in the comments below.

This delicious salad dressing can also double as a dip.

Don’t limit yourself to only salads. This works well with a veggies and cracker tray as well! When I’m using this as a dip, I use a little less oil and vinegar and a little more basil. This gives me a thicker more “dippable” (is that a word?) consistency. Seriously, a crowd pleaser. Give it a try!
