Green Goddess Dressing Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tsp anchovy paste or 1 anchovy fillet rinsed*
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/2 cup chopped basil
  • 1 scallion chopped, white and green parts
  • salt and pepper to taste

Wedge Salad Ingredients

  • 2 heads of romaine lettuce cored and split lengthwise down the middle
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes sliced in half
  • 4 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled


Green Goddess Dressing Directions

  • Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor. Process until the dressing is smooth and creamy. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.

Salad assembly

  • Place the romaine wedges on a plate cut sides up. Top with a generous amount of dressing. Sprinkle cherry tomato slices and pieces of bacon over the top. Serve immediately.


*Notes: Anchovies aren't just for Caesar Salad dressing or pizza. You can leave them out if you must, but I encourage you to try it, just this once. You will be surprised at the subtle, salty, and savory flavor (called umami) it will add to your dressing.
