Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess Dressing

 The classic Green Goddess Dressing

Three variations of the Green Goddess Dressing appear on one typed recipe card from the San Francisco collection. One version of the recipe is the one “as created by Chef Phillip Roemer of The Palace Hotel, San Francisco, in the 1920’s”, the other from the West Coast Cookbook, and the last from Spice Islands. It is very interesting to see three different versions of the Green Goddess Dressing on one card. 

Each of the three recipes use anchovies or anchoy paste, mayonnaise, tarragon, parsley, onion, and vinegar; so the recipes are similar each with its own unique twist and flavor. 

Try all three and let us  know which one is your favorite.
