In this weekly culinary column, I will be focusing on one dish – giving the reader a quick history of the dish, the classical preparation of it, and of course, my own spin on the classic.

This week I have chosen to cover green goddess dressing.

Green goddess dressing is a salad dressing that typically consists of chervil, chives, tarragon, sour cream, mayonnaise, anchovies and lemon juice. The most common story of how this dressing got its name is from San Francisco in 1923 in the Palace Hotel. Hotel Chef Phillip Roemer wanted to pay his tribute to the green goddess play and its actor George Arliss.

2 tbsp​Parsley, chopped
2 tbsp​Chives, chopped
