Green Goddess Dip is a favorite of mine for fancy and casual parties alike. It’s such a fun old school throwback. My more modern version adds basil and anise seed to the classic recipe, it makes for a delightful surprise.
I like to pair this dip with veggies, shrimp, breadsticks and cheese. Or you can thin the dip to dressing consistency by increasing wet ingredients to taste, it's delicious on a tossed salad.
½ cup basil
½ cup parsley
12-16 chives, cut in 2 inch pieces
1 tablespoon yellow or white onion
3 anchovy fillets
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup mayonnaise
¼ teaspoon anise seed
Juice of half a lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor and serve cold with shrimp and veggies for dipping.
Adding more greek yogurt and lemon juice (teaspoon at a time) for thinner dip.
