Green goddess has been around for about a hundred years, but it’s arguably more popular now than it’s ever been. These days, the name can apply to any variety of herby salad dressing, but the original recipe —invented at San Francisco’s Palace Hotel in 1923 — included chives, anchovies, scallions, and parsley.



  1. Combine the watercress, parsley, chervil, tarragon, chives, capers, anchovies, garlic, shallot and sugar in a blender or food processor.
  2. Add the lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and mayonnaise and puree until pale green and very smooth. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
