Green Goddess Dressing

Green Goddess Dressing

A mixture of mayonnaise, sour cream, chopped herbs, lemon juice, tarragon vinegar, and anchovies, this elegant sauce was invented in the 1920s at San Francisco's Palace Hotel. The anchovies give the dressing a back note of earthy saltiness, making this delicious combination even more so. See the recipe for Green Goddess DressingJames Baigrie
