Green goddess dressing was invented in the 1920's at San Francisco's Palace Hotel as a tribute to William Archer's hit play, The Green Goddess. It gets it's bright green color from lots of fresh green herbs. This dressing was originally made with tarragon, but has been updated with basil, which actually has more flavor! Delicious on green salad, but also great served with vegetables like asparagus and broccoli. Adapted from the Barefoot Contessa at Home cookbook.
