When it comes to dipping sauces, I do think ranch takes the number one spot. I am not a huge fan of ranch dressing, so when it comes to a good dip for veggies, Green Goddess Dip is my go-to dip. The fact that this dip takes about 5 minutes to prepare makes it even more appealing.
What Is Green Goddess?
Green goddess is usually a salad dressing that is made with mayo, garlic, anchovies, parsley, and green onions. The parsley lends this dressing its green color, and a splash of lemon juice thins out the mixture and adds a fresh taste to it all. This dip is based on that lovely green dressing, but I changed things up a bit to suit my taste and to make this more of a dip than a dressing.,
