History of Green Goddess Dip

This dip is celebrating it’s 100-year anniversary next year! First created in 1923 at San Francisco’s Palace Hotel by Chef Philip Roemer, this dip (or dressing) has been well-loved ever since. He invented it for George Arliss, the actor performing in ‘ The Green Goddess’ – a play by William Archer.

It’s thought to have been inspired by a sauce served to Louis XIII back in the 1600s (which was served with eel instead of salad!)

Roemer’s original recipe is believed to be a combination of sour cream, mayonnaise, chives, parsley, lemon juice, anchovies, and vinegar. It’s changed over the past century though and there are literally hundreds of variations around today.

Modern versions include chervil, capers or spinach. Or even avocado to boost not only the flavour and colour but also the wonderfully creaminess.

Avocado Herb Green Goddess Dip FAQs

How far ahead can you make this veggie dip?

Most homemade dip recipes are best served as soon as they’re made but you can make this one ahead. This will free up your time when making a vegetable board or charcuterie to go with it. And if you’re making more than one dip, this creamy red pepper dip is also seriously amazing.

Now the only issue with avocado-based recipes is they sometimes oxidize and go brown. They taste the same but that brown shade isn’t so appetizing, and brown goddess dip doesn’t have the same catchy ring to it! If you’re planning to make your avocado herb green goddess dip ahead, see if you can find Shepard avocados since they are a very bright green hue.
If you can only get Hass, those are also fine, but as soon as you’ve made your homemade dip, cover the bowl and have the plastic wrap in contact with the top layer so the dip isn’t exposed to the air. You might need to give this creamy avocado dip a good stir before serving in case the ingredients separate.

What is good for dipping

Peppers, carrots, bell peppers, cucumbers, and cherry (or grape tomatoes) all make great dippers. If you want some crunch, pita chips, tortilla chips or even potato chips will work. Perhaps you’re preparing a vegetable board or charcuterie. As well as dipping the veggies, you can enjoy some of the creamy avocado dip with the deli meats. Oh, and if you have any leftovers, it’s also delicious spread on sandwiches instead of butter. Well, as long as you’re making a savoury sandwich of course!
