Green Goddess: then and now
Remember Green Goddess dressing all creamy and green? It’s history is traced to the court of Louis XIII and was created to accompany fish. In more modern times, it was revived at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in 1923 and made in honor of a popular actor of the day. Traditional Green Goddess dressing is a mix of avocado with mayonnaise, sour cream, herbs, spices, tangy lemon juice, and sometimes includes anchovies and Worcestershire sauce. While those ingredients are fairly low in carbohydrates, some of us are trying to skip the fats in commercial mayonnaise (like processed vegetable oil) or the dairy in sour cream. What follows is a Paleo keto Green Goddess version that is high in beneficial fats, and low in things we don’t need such as unhealthy fats, additives and chemicals in the commercially-prepared versions.
Blend it in lightening speed
Best of all, you can make this dressing in a NutriBullet in a few minutes. It’s thick when it’s blended, so you can use it that way like a dipping sauce or thin it out to make it more like a salad dressing. It’s easy and delicious and a little dollop gives extra zip to a piece of cold chicken at lunchtime! A perfect addition to a Sugar-Free January.
