Green goddess dressing is a classic creamy dressing that is known for its bright, fresh flavor and thick, velvety texture. But have you ever tried a green goddess dressing made with Greek yogurt? My version of the beloved dressing- the Ultimate Green Goddess Dressing– packs an extra punch of protein, making it a healthy and delicious option for anyone looking to add some extra nutrition to their meals. It’s so good, I could practically drink it, which is why I’m so excited to share it with you!

Friends, this year, I am all about finding ways to get in some extra protein, which is why I have loved making my salad dressings with Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is a staple in many healthy diets, and for good reason. It’s high in protein and low in fat, making it a great choice for anyone looking to add some extra protein to their diet. Plus, it also happens to be low in lactose, making it a great option for those with more sensitive tummies. And when you combine that with the bright, fresh flavors of herbs like parsley, basil, and chives, you get a dressing that is not only good for you, but also incredibly delicious.

So, how can you enjoy this ultimate green goddess dressing? The options are truly endless! Of course, you can drizzle it over a fresh greens salad for a quick and easy lunch, or use it as a dip for crudités. You can even use it as a sauce for grilled vegetables or chicken, or spread it on a sandwich for a healthy and tasty twist. And if you’re feeling extra adventurous, try using it as a topping for baked potatoes or roasted vegetables. It’s so good!

Whether you’re looking for a healthy dressing to liven up your salads, or simply want a delicious sauce to add some extra flavor to your meals, this ultimate green goddess dressing is sure to be a hit. Trust me. 😉

What You Need to Make This Delicious, Drinkable Dressing

  • Fresh Herbs: The best part about this Green Goddess dressing? You can use any herbs you want! I used chives, basil, dill, and parsley, but feel free to throw in any herbs you’d like!
  • Tarragon Leaves: Tarragon leaves add a delicious flavor to this dressing!
  • Greek Yogurt: As mentioned above, Greek yogurt not only makes this dressing drinkable and creamy, but adds a boost of protein to keep you full and satisfied!

  • Mayonnaise: A touch of mayo gives this dressing the perfect texture! If you’re not a fan of store-bought mayo (like myself) then highly recommend making your own homemade mayo – it only takes one minute!
  • Garlic: Fresh garlic is always recommended for salad dressings, because it adds the freshest flavor!
  • Sea Salt & Black Pepper: A touch of sea salt and black pepper is always necessary for dressing recipes!
