What is Green Goddess Dressing?

by | Mar 20, 2021 | EATING/FASTING

Even if you’re brand new to a healthy living lifestyle, chances are you’ve heard of or been offered green goddess dressing? Green goddess is a famous dressing rumored to have been created at the Palace Hotel in San Franciscoand is now used everywhere, often on salads, sandwiches, raw veggies, and more. It typically is made from mayonnaise, sour cream, chervil, chives, anchovy, tarragon, lemon juice, and pepper—but only if you are limited in your culinary creativity.

When you are intermittent fasting, the challenge is to make sure each bite in your eating window packs a healthy and satisfying punch. So, the trick is to make the dressing tasty and good for you, thus shift the conversation you have with yourself about being bored by eating healthy foods.
