Authentic Green Goddess Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
taste is ok but this is definitely not authentic "green goddess". The origin of this dressing was to make a real mayonnaise homemade in the blender as that's what chefs did back in the day it was created. the tarragon was the center point plus chive or scallion, garlic and anchovy with parsley. when you whirl that around in the egg until it's well blended, yes, that's the "green" part. Then emulsify oil into it. Then balance out the finished mayonnaise with creme fraiche. I didn't see garlic in this recipe or the tarragon. Thus, it's not an authentic adaptation of what the original creator intended. The original version of this was meant to be served with constructed crab seafood salad, much as remoulade or something similar is still used in New Orleans cuisine.
