You may have heard of the Green Goddess Dressing, a surprise, surprise, green dressing which is said to have originated around 1923, at a hotel in San Francisco. The story goes, the head chef at the Palace Hotel wanted to create something to pay tribute to the star of a hit play at the time, The Green Goddess. He created the dressing, which, just as the play had, became a great hit and continues to be a popular salad dressing to make to this day! I’ve put a spin on the classic, making it a healthier version sans “star” ingredients, including heavy sour cream and mayonnaise. Playing the role of creaminess in their place, are avocado and Greek yoghurt. I’ve also played with the key characters, and thrown in some “extras” to make it healthier…and tastier! This is delicious dolloped onto roast vegetables, as a side to roast chicken, or simply used as a dip for raw vegetables or as an accompaniment to a cheese board. This Green Goodness Dressing is a dramatically good rendition if I do say so myself.
½ cup of fresh parsley
½ cup of fresh mint

Health Bite: Avocados are a great, healthy fat substitute for sour cream, which is high in less-healthy saturated fats. Avocados are a good source of vitamins C, E and K and they also provide omega-3 fatty acids.
