Buttermilk Green Goddess Dressing
Missy, here. I love getting my hair colored--for obvious reasons like covering the roots and adding highlights. :) But I also love the fact that my salon subscribes to Bon Appetit Magazine! I get to look at it for 30 minutes while waiting for the color to hide my gray. :) In fact, I've fallen in love with the magazine and recently subscribed.
Before I subscribed, I would jot recipes on scrap paper in my purse. This is one of those recipes from the April 2012 issue. I made it last week.
So that was the recipe off the website. Now, I'll share the photos and my own comments...
Oh, and I couldn't resist! Some cilantro (below) that I bought at the same time I bought the dressing ingredients. I had to throw it in the photos for those of you who said they can't stand it. LOL
Okay, back to the real ingredients. I chopped the herbs and garlic.
Then I chopped the anchovies. Okay, I'll admit, I was scared of these. I'd never bought them before. But I've always loved Ceasar dressing and thought I'd give this a try.
Then I tossed it all in my small smoothie blender (which I love!)
Look what a beautiful green it is!
Note the bottle of lemon juice in the back. I forgot a fresh lemon!
I grabbed a few salad greens, tomatoes and some broccoli to make a side salad. Then added my dressing.
This dressing is so fresh and earthy. But I admit, I'm going to leave out the anchovies next time. I had trouble getting the taste out of my mouth! I'm not sure if it was just too much (maybe one filet would have been enough). Or maybe the brand was stronger than others. Either way, I'm leaving it out next time and will really enjoy the fresh herbs and lemon. :)
