Creamy Green Goddess Dip is a snack that brings a burst of fresh flavor and fabulous color with it. It’s perfect as an after-school snack or as a dip to enjoy when you’re watching football or binge-watching your favorite series. It’s so easy to make and definitely a favorite of mine!
Creamy Green Goddess Dip
Have you ever had green goddess dressing? I just love it – it’s herby and a little tangy (and green and gorgeous) – but I really wanted to transform the flavors of the dressing into a snack. I did just that with Creamy Green Goddess Dip – it’s ideal to serve with your favorite crunchy veggies, or some toasted Italian-style bread.
Another fun snack to try is my Greek Nachos with Tzatziki Sauce. You’ll love its twist on traditional nachos, and it’s perfect to dig into for snack time!
I added my own touches to this Creamy Green Goddess Dip. For example, I added a few handfuls of spinach and an avocado to add to its creaminess. I tossed in some garlic, too, because that’s how I roll!
I omitted the anchovy paste and Dijon mustard you’d find in more traditional recipes. Even though I love anchovies, some people don’t, nor can they easily get their hands on the paste.
No matter what you choose to include or omit when you make this dip, I recommend that you definitely keep the tarragon in the mix. It adds such amazing flavor.
Are you watching the Super Bowl the weekend? Maybe you’re going to celebrate Valentine’s Day with friends or the one you love? This dip is, without a doubt, ideal to serve when watching any of your favorite sports or getting together with friends and family for whatever reason. My Spiced Edamame Hummus makes another great snack to dig into.
Creamy Green Goddess Dip makes a welcome snack for hungry kiddos who burst through the door after school, too. You could even pack it up in lunch boxes for a mid-day treat.
I try to use the best products possible when I make meals, and for this recipe, I sought out my favorite sour cream to add to the mix. Quality ingredients make the best recipes!
Try my Creamy Green Goddess Dip this season (and beyond)! Your family and friends will love it, and it’s an easy way to satisfy anyone who’s ready to snack.
