Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Written by chanie on March 18th, 2014


I have a confession to make. The hamantaschen got the better of me. If you’ve been following my dieting journey on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve seen all my healthy foodie posts and you’re probably wondering where I’m holding. Well, I completed Phase 1 of South Beach, lost 5 lbs, went on to Phase 2 and fell off the wagon.


Yup, I’m human. My healthy hamantaschen could only take me so far! I caved on Purim and had some of my mom’s mouthwatering corned beef, potato knishes and a couple of other goodies for dessert (they shall remain unnamed). So, here I am, 1 month till Passover renewing my commitment to my diet.


One of the things that makes dieting easier for me, is having a sugar-free salad dressing that can double as a dip for cut up veggies. Having a container of the stuff in my fridge, makes preparing a salad less of a chore, and I’m less likely to cave into my cravings.

  1. I was also eating so healthy lately and all that chocolate on Purim is what weakened me. I heart chocolate so much!
    I’m sure you’ll continue to do great! The dressing looks delicious, though mayo does have sugar in it, unless you make your own. I want to try it soon.

  2. Jewish holidays are a great challenge for diets. I am trying to be really healthy and no sugar before Pessach. Let’s see how I do. I never buy dressing and always make my own. I really like this recipe, specially all the fresh herbs.

    I’ve been using the half Greek Yogurt/half Mayo for dairy dressings. Really delicious. Green Goddess is an oldie but goodie. Good luck on your diet. One year at Passover I went on my own “matzo diet” and only ate matzo during the day and then dinner. Not healthy but it worked.

  4. Great idea for a light dressing for almost anything. It’s similar tomy variation of a green goddess dressing with you using water. I’ll be trying this!
