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.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
