It's a Love That Has No Past

Mexican Green Goddess Dressing
Since the dawn of time I have been fascinated with Green Goddess Dressing.  What was this magical concoction!?  I don't remember ever having tasted it, yet I knew that I loved it. I didn't want to taint my wonderment of this Diosa Verde so without looking at recipes beforehand I made a Mexican version.  Stick with what you know, right?  

Mexican Green Goddess Dressing
  • Greek Yogurt (replaced Mayo)
  • Lime (replaced the lemon)
  • Avocado (replaced the oil)
  • cilantro (replaced the tarragon)
  • garlic
  • pickled jalapenos (replaced vinegar) 
  • green onions (replaced chives)
  • S&P
  • a pinch of Knorr Chicken Flavor Bouillon *
Blend all together to your desired consistency.  I had to add a little water to get it to blend and due to the little chunks of onion and herbs, it doesn't pour well out of a squirt bottle but other than that, I loved it! 
Refreshing, Tangy and Addictive!
Afterthoughts:   Now that I see the official list of ingredients (although recipes vary drastically on-line), I will add anchovies and dill next time.  I had no idea the ingredients and had always suspected buttermilk.  
* I've noticed more online cooks adding chicken bouillon powder to tons of recipes and I think it's to add that bit of msg (and umami) that makes everything taste better but no one wants to buy a jar of msg because we think it's bad news.
