Green Goddess

Green Goddess dressing was born at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in the 1920s.  The dressing was made in honor of the actor George Arliss who was at the time in a popular play called…yep…The Green Goddess.  The plot involves imminent doom and dismay in India for three American tourists who are in the wrong place at the wrong time.  The play and the dressing were both extraordinarily popular in the 20’s and 30’s.  The dressing is commonly made with mayo, sour cream, anchovies, tarragon, chives and parsley.
