Green Goddess Salad

San Francisco is the origin of the famous Green Goddess Salad, created and made famous in 1923 at the Palace Hotel.  For the better part of the 1940s, ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, this was the salad not only on the West Coast, but nationwide. 

Today, it may be considered retro to make and serve it, but hey, retro’s cool, and this salad is yummy.  The dressing is named for its tint, which it derives from the herbs that go in it, and is the predecessor of ranch dressing.


  1. In a blender, combine all the dressing ingredients, except for the yogurt, and blend until smooth. 
  2.  Add in the yogurt and process until just blended.
  3. Refrigerate if you don’t plan to use the dressing right away.
  4. In a serving bowl, combine your salad ingredients.
  5. Top with dressing, sprinkle with an additional dash of black pepper, toss, and serve.
