Green Goddess Salad Dressing is like a favorite little black dress – it never goes out of style and works to serve with many different foods.
This is a slight adaptation, but a very delicious version, of the original version of the Green Goddess Salad Dressing. Today, there are many version of this delicious salad dressing. Green Goddess Salad Dressing also makes an excellent dip to serve with your favorite vegetables and also a spread for your sandwiches. One of my favorite ways to enjoy this fantastic dressing, is to serve with steamed artichokes. I also like to serve this dressing on top of a chilled lettuce wedge. So good!
History: The Green Goddess Salad Dressing was created at San Francisco’s Palace Hotel (now called the Sheraton-Palace) in the 1920s. The Palace Hotel was built in 1875 and was San Francisco’s first grant lodging hotel. The Palace Hotel was considered the largest hotel in the western United States for many years.
The hotel’s executive chef, Philip Roemer, named the dressing for English actor George Arliss (1868-1846), who stayed at the hotel and also ate in the Palm Court restaurant during the time he performed in the play called The Green Goddess. This play was considered the best play of the 1920-21 Broadway season and it later became on the earliest “talkie” movies in 1930. The actor frequently complemented San Francisco’s marvelous weather and proclaimed that it induced a healthy appetite.
