Green Goddess

If you've eaten so many salads, you're starting to feel like a bunny - change up your dressings and toppings. It's an amazing way to get a few more green meals before you head for the pizza place. Green goddess dressing is a bit of a throw back to my parents' age but as always, they were right. (To make it truly authentic - you need to add two teaspoons of anchovy paste...but I just can't do it!)

Green Goddess Dressing

- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts (6 to 7 scallions)
- 1 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 cloves minced chopped garlic
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 cup sour cream

Place the mayonnaise, scallions, basil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a blender and blend until smooth. Next, add the sour cream and process just until blended. Refrigerate for 15 minutes and serve. (You can also store this in your fridge cold, and it should last up to two weeks)
