Green Goddess Dip


  • 3-4 anchovy fillets, drained

  • 1 small shallot, chopped or a small, 2-inch piece of red onion or onions

  • 1/2 cup flat leaf parsley (2 handfuls)

  • 3 tablespoons chives (about 12 blades)

  • 2 tablespoons tarragon leaves (about 3 sprigs)

  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 1 avocado

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • Black pepper


In a food processor, combine first 6 ingredients and process while adding EVOO in a slow and steady stream. Once the mixture is paste-like, add the avocado and sour cream and process once again until smooth. Transfer the dip to a bowl and serve with veggies and breadsticks alongside for dipping.
