Green Goddess Salad Dressing Recipe: A Historic Creamy Salad Dressing Recipe With a Cali Twist

The historic green goddess salad dressing recipe was created by Chef Philip Roemer right in my hometown, San Francisco, at the Palace Hotel. He came up with the recipe in 1923 for a banquet at the hotel honoring actor George Arliss, the lead in William Archer's play, The Green Goddess

Today, most people eat healthier, so I've adapted the recipe to fit the California nouveau lifestyle. This easy green goddess salad dressing recipe is fabulous on salads, mixed into pasta salads, drizzled on fish or chicken or as a dipping sauce.
