Green Goddess Dressing/Dip

This dip/dressing is a new favorite of mine and amazingly HERBALICIOUS! No, not a word...oh well, it is the perfect description for this dressing which I am calling "green goddess" because I think it is the best description for it!

This dressing is actually the product of a recipe gone wrong.  I've admitted before that I'm not the best at measuring my ingredients.  I try to measure accurately so that you get the same results as I do when you recreate these masterpieces (umm, too strong of an adjective too? I think not!).  But sometimes I go a little farther with one ingredient or another and sometimes instead of a complete fail, I find something that is even better than what I was hoping to make.

That is how I came up with this, which originally started as homemade ranch dressing :)  So this should teach all of us to be creative in the kitchen and go rogue once in a while.  The result could be amazing!
Homemade Green Goddess Dressing
3 scallions, whites and greens, roughly chopped

1 c fresh basil leaves
1/4 c fresh parsley leaves
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp dijon mustard
2 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tsp chopped garlic
1 c low-fat mayonaise
6 oz plain greek yogurt
1/2 c low-fat buttermilk

Put all ingredients into a food processor and puree until fully combined and all herbs are chopped and combined. Refrigerate for 1 hour and enjoy!

This dressing is delicious over salads but also perfect if used as a dip for vegetables!
