A salad fit for a goddess (dressing)

Here's a recipe for a creamy dressing I've been enjoying as a zestier, gluten-free alternative to Annie's Goddess Dressing.

gluten-free salad
Green Goddess Dressing

1/4 cup tahini
1/2 to 1 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup fresh parsley sprigs, lightly packed
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup warm water
1 clove garlic

Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth. Use at room temperature. Store leftovers in a sealed container in refrigerator.

hummus and salad
(That's the original flavor of Mary's Gone Crackers and Spicy Hummus)

Yummy! I loved annie's goddess dressing, and miss it, so i'm looking forward to trying this one! My favourite thing to do with goddess dressing was to put it on steamed rice and veggies.

green goddess paleeze! it's far removed from THE Green Goddess dressing that is based on tarragon and chives...

Did you try it, Bobooshe? It's gotten rave reviews on other sites where I've shared it. I never claimed it tasted just like Annie's Goddess Dressing. And the Annie's Goddess Dressing I've had didn't contain tarragon OR chives... So color me confused!

The ingredients in Annie's are:
Expeller pressed canola oil, water, tahini, cider vinegar, soy sauce, lemon juice, sea salt, garlic, toasted sesame seeds, parsley, chives, xanthan gum

This recipe contains most of the same ingredients. That said, there are lots of "goddess" dressings, made by various companies and restaurants. This one comes closest to one I had at a yummy vegan restaurant years ago.

(oops, my mistake, it does contain chives. but no tarragon)

i guess i'm pretty old school..when i hear green goddess or ceasar salad i'm expecting a certain group of classic essential's not a big deal just one of my pet peeves..the recipe of your dressing sounds about a new name?
