green, the new red


Dinner Belle Calling: Green is the new red this Valentine’s Day.  So why not take a page out of Cupid’s book and add a little something “angelic”  to your V-day dinner menu?  If you’ve never tried Green Goddess dressing you’re in for a real treat. This recipe turns the delicious dressing into an irresistible dip, perfect for pairing with colorful crudités and crostini as an appetizer.  So go ahead and give this one a try…


Green Goddess Dip:

  •  2 Tablespoons each of chopped basil, tarragon, dill, chives and flat leaf parsley
  • 4 anchovies
  • Juice from ½ lemon
  • 1 to 2 chopped garlic cloves (pending your affinity for the strong stuff)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mayo
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Puree all ingredients together in a blender or food processor until completely smooth and the herbs are blended through.  Add salt & pepper as desired and more lemon juice if needed. 

Feel free to use low fat or fat free mayo & sour cream for a lighter (and still tasty) version.
