Dairy-Free Green Goodness Ranch Dressing

By Suzanne Havala Hobbs

Who says Ranch dressing has to be white? This dressing is also known as Green Goddess, which was a popular store bought dressing in the early 1970s before Ranch dressing came onto the salad scene. The original contained sour cream and was known for its green color. This recipe replaces sour cream with a nondairy alternative. Try this dressing as a veggie dip too.

Yield: 10 servings (1-1/4 cups)

1/2 cup plain nondairy sour cream

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon dried tarragon, or a couple of sprigs, chopped
