this is a multi-purpose dressing that is super delicious, easy to make and healthy! you toss all the ingredients into a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. don't have all of the fresh herbs? no worries! you can leave some out or add more in. the types and amounts of the fresh herbs won't ruin the taste! although, FRESH herbs are the way to go... not dried.
as a dip - add a bowl of green goddess to your crudite platter and see your veggies disappear
