Be a Green Goddess

Green Goddess Salad Dressing – gluten free

The markets are brimming with fresh green veggies of many kinds. Rocket is my favorite salad green. It’s tart and crisp and holds up to a thick dressing. I came up with this version of Green Goddess when a gardener friend gave me a handful of basil and I found just a little balsamic vinegar in the cupboard. It’s a little sweet with a bite of vinegar.

Makes 3 cups or 700ml.

In a blender combine until creamy:

1 cup chopped fresh basil or mint

1 1/2 Tbl. chopped red onion

2Tbl. balsamic vinegar

2 Tbl. low fat sour cream

1/4 cup low fat mayonnaise

8 Tbl. plain yogurt

6 Tbl. extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbl. honey

Quick Conversion Chart: 1 Tbl. is 15 ml. 1/4 cup is 60 ml. 1 cup is 240 ml.
