So I got a little adventurous in the kitchen today. I made pesto and green goddess dressing. Both came out … ok.
2 cups mayo (I used one)
4 minced anchovy fillets (I used 8)
1 green onion (used 1/4 of a yellow)
2 teaspoons parsley (I used cilantro)
2 teaspoons chives
1 tablespoon tarragon vinegar (I used 2)
Sour creme to taste
Butter milk to taste
small handful of spinach
Then I threw it in the blender.
Edited to add: Wolf and I put this dressing on a green salad he made for dinner last night. It turned out much better than I originally thought. Maybe I just needed to not taste it or maybe it needed to be in the fridge for a while. Wolf really liked it too.
threw it in the blender. It’s a little heavy on the garlic but that’ll keep the vampires away tonight.
Edited to add: I haven’t tried this yet, I will with my lunch today. I’ll put it on some of the bread we got from the CSA yesterday.
One thing I realized is when it comes to pesto and hummos, I’m a traditionalist. I don’t like it when those recipes are mucked with. I found myself a traditional pesto recipe and will make that the next time. It’s one I’ve had before so I know I like it.
