Fresh Green Goddess Dressing

Recipe: Eshun Mott

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

A modern take on the classic dressing, this light, fresh version uses tahini instead of mayonnaise and a combination of mint and dill instead of the usual tarragon.


  • 1 cup packed Italian parsley leaves
  • 1⁄4 cup coarsely chopped mint leaves
  • 1⁄4 cup coarsely chopped dill
  • 1⁄4 cup minced chives
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • 1⁄2 cup tahini
  • 1⁄2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1⁄4 cup water, plus more if needed
  • 1⁄4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • Pinch sugar
  • Salt, to taste


Yield: Makes 1 1/2 cups

Make Dressing

  2. Thin with extra water to desired consistency and season with salt, to taste. Serve with crunchy baby lettuces, cucumbers or crudités.
