I’ve seen a version of this in dozens of places, but I think I blended a recipe from Lynn Crawford’s book, ‘At Home with Lynn Crawford’, bon appetit, and Ina Garten’s presentation – in this case, Bibb lettuce and tomatoes only. This makes a good 2 cups, and I prefer it very chilled so I made it a couple of hours ahead. Another presentation that I think I’ll try next, is ‘all green’ – 2 or 3 green lettuces, green onion, cucumber, dill, parsley and avocado – enjoy!
Green Goddess Salad Dressing
1 avocado, peeled and pitted
1/3 c. mayonnaise AND 1/4 c. + buttermilk
1 T. lemon juice
1/2 c. fresh basil AND 1/4 c. fresh parsley
2 cloves of garlic
2 anchovy fillets (or 2 t. anchovy paste)
1 t. kosher salt AND 1/2 t. freshly ground pepper
2 green onions, chopped
Put everything in your blender and blend until smooth – adding more buttermilk as needed for your desired consistency. Chill for a good couple of hours and then dress your salad as you would – you could also leave it thick for a wonderful veggie dip.
