Can you still buy it bottled? I found a recipe for it that sounds delish.
2 anchovy fillets, rinsed, patted dry, and coarsely chopped
1 medium garlic clove, smashed and peeled
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh Italian parsley leaves
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh tarragon leaves
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
I loved Green Goddess dressing -- I was very upset when I couldn't find it anymore. Thanks, OP!
For you R1. The instructions, pretty easy.
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula as needed. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper as needed. Refrigerate in a container with a tight fitting lid for up to 1 week.
Gee OP, if only there were somewhere to search for the information that you seek
[quote] In the early 1970s, salad dressing maker Seven Seas produced a bottled version of this dressing. It is still made in limited quantities, although the company has since been purchased by Kraft Foods. It is sold at online outlets like The Vermont Country Store and Ralph's grocery on the West coast (Parent company Kroeger), also Wal-Mart.
I agree that the bottle stuff is crap. Most bottled dressing contain HFCS now.
I got ½ a bottle in my fridge as I type.
I like to drizzle Green Goddess dressing on a quick salad I make when the sweet grapefruits and avocados come in this time of year.
Bottled Green Goddess dressing is not nearly as bad as using the word "delish".
Just saw a bottled version at Ralph's in LA but I can't remember if it was Kraft or Anne's Organic. Hadn't seen it in years.
I haven't had this dressing since I was little, but I've always had the impression that it had cucumber in it. I guess I confused it with creamy cucumber.
Kraft Green Goddess dressing. Seen today in Publix in St. Petersburg, FL. "Savory and Vibrant." Near the key lime pie.
Yuck, you lost me at tarragon, OP.
I thought Green Goddess dressing had a cucumber flavor... Is there another dressing that looks similar and has cucumbers in it? I could swear I've had it before.
Green Goddess dressing was awful. It used to give my tongue pimples!
It is one of the salad dressing choices at Saladworks when you are willing to mortgage your house to buy a salad there.

Put it on eBay.
My mom made OP's recipe. We loved it so much that in a pinch Seven Seas Green Goddess would do.
I bought the Kraft Green Goddess a few months ago, and I think they substituted the anchovies with marshmallows.
Annes Goddess dressing is good, but it's not Green Goddess.
Kraft bought Seven Seas but the flavor seems the same as when I was a kid. I bought a bottle a couple of years ago.
It's very similar to Ranch, but perhaps more herbal. No anchovy flavor that I detected (I don't like anchovies and they're not "nutty" in taste, despite what Rachel Ray says.)
BTW, Julia Child tracked down Rosa Cardini, the daughter of Caesar Cardini. The original Caesar Salad had no anchovies, just some Worcestershire sauce, the better brands of which contain some anchovy paste.
And here I was thinking Caesar salad was named after the emperor.

No avocado? I always followed a recipe that used avocado.
The current Seven Seas Green Goddess is nothing like the old version. To me it tastes like Kraft Creamy Italian with a little green food coloring thrown in.
I may have to try the recipe above. I have fond memories of Green Goddess from my childhood. My grandmother always used it as the dressing for her salads.
Yuck, a fish dressing?? Eeeew, gross.
Try Ina Garten's recipe-it's deelish!
A homemade Green Goddess dressing with avocado sounds wonderful. Post the recipe if it turns out.
The OP's recipe is what I've used in the past. I think I found it, or at least something that also used parsley and tarragon, in an Alice Waters cookbook.
However, I just looked at Ina's recipe, R25, and I know I'll like that more because I like basil so much more than parsley and tarragon, so thank you.
Bottled dressing = ick. If I don't have time, or the ingredients on hand, to make something like Green Goddess -- which is most of the time -- I just dress a salad simply, first coating the greens in EVOO and salt, then tossing, then vinegar, and then tossing. That's from Marcella Hazan.
I used to love the bottled stuff (my mom probably bought whichever brand was cheapest at the time) -- haven't looked for it in ages, not sure what's available now.
I don't recall it tasting like parsley or tarragon (both of which I dislike), nor anchovies (which I love), so I'm surprised to find from OP's recipe that those are major ingredients.
The Ina Garten recipe with basil does sound good & I'm going to try that.
[quote]Annes Goddess dressing is good, but it's not Green Goddess.
Agreed, not the same but the Annes/Trader Joes version (they are the same thing) is a similar bottled substitute that is quite delicious. You can find it at Trader Joes for a very affordable price.
I make a vegan version of the Annie's dressing that uses tahini as the fat and fresh herbs for the greenery.
It is fantastic and will put you off store-bought dressings. Last summer I grew flat leaf parsley on my patio and put piles of it in my freezer so I could make the dressing all winter long.
