  • 1 cup Mayonnaise (Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise)
  • 1 cup scallions, chopped (white and green parts)
  • 1 cup basil leaves, chopped (18-20 leaves or one 3/4 oz container of Shenandoah Growers fresh organic basil)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed (about one large sized lemon)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons anchovy paste
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream (full fat)


  1. In a good blender place the mayonnaise, chopped scallions, basil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, garlic cloves, anchovy paste, kosher salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth. Throw in the sour cream and process until just blended. Refrigerate until ready to use. 

  2. This recipe is good for one quart of Green Goddess Salad Dressing. I recommend storing it in a wide mouth quart size mason jar.
