Helloooooo goddesses! What—you don’t feel like a goddess? You feel like a blob of garbage who ate a bunch of chips for dinner last night? I feel you. Maybe you need some delicious, healthy, and easy-to-whip-up EXTRA GREEN GODDESS DIP in your life. Green Goddess Dip is one of my favorite snacks to make because it’s so healthy, modifiable, and flavorful. Fresh herrrrrrbs, baby!! You can pretty much put any herbs you want in it—whatever you have on hand. I make this Extra Green Goddess Dip with plain greek yogurt and no mayo so it’s pretty healthy, especially if you eat it with yummy fresh veggies like peppers and cucumbers! This will get you back on track and feeling good. We’re making it EXTRA green by adding two big handfuls of spinach to this dip. It pumps up the color and gets more greens in your bod. It really doesn’t change the flavor much, so why not stuff some extra nutrients in?
One thing I want to emphasize about this dip is that it is EXTREMELY modifiable. When I make this recipe I try to use all the herbs I possibly can, but if you only have 2 or 3 of the ones I listed, that’s fine! Personally I think that basil and/or dill are the major MUST-haves but the rest can be swapped in or out. This is a great recipe to experiment with! I’ve even seen recipes where people use avocados instead of yogurt to make it vegan. That sounds absolutely delicious too. And if you just want it to be a regular Green Goddess Dip, you don’t have to include the extra spinach.
Make sure you taste your dip as you go along. Maybe you want it to be more lemony or more salty. I will give you one piece of advice when it comes to the garlic—just use one small clove! I am a big garlic lover and I’ve tried this recipe with a large clove and I found that it overpowered the dip. So, at least start small and if you really want more, you can add it.
Another thing that’s awesome about this recipe is that you can use it as a dip OR a dressing. Go ahead and throw it on a salad or mix it with a protein and make a salad-y charcuterie board like Molly Baz does in her Bon Appetit version of green goddess salad.
P.S. If you need to eat chips for dinner (what, sometimes you do!), at least dip them in Extra Green Goddess Dip. Yummm… salt & vinegar kettle chips with EGGD sounds goooood. 😉Print
