Green Goddess Dressing – Green Goddess Dressing was originally created at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in the 1920’s. It was served at an event honoring George Arliss the star of the hit play “The Green Goddess” hence the name. It’s a homemade dressing packed with the flavor of fresh herbs. It can be served thinned out a bit as a salad dressing or served it as a dip. You can also use it as a sauce for fish or chicken. It’s a retro dressing, but for those of us not around in the ’20’s it’s a refreshing change from Ranch or Italian dressing.
