My Green Goddess Dip is packed full of delicious fresh herbs and takes just minutes to prepare! Dips are a fantastic dish to prepare when you’re entertaining, or simply looking for a quick snack.
To make this simple dip, I wash and dry a selection of fresh herbs and roughly chop them. I then add the herbs to a blender, along with sour cream, avocado and a little mustard. Blend the dip until it is a creamy and smooth consistency, and season to taste. Serve in a dish of your choice; I love to top my dip with a drizzle of olive oil and a little lemon zest.
My Green Goddess Dip is creamy, full of flavour and deliciously herby!
Prepare the dip the day before and store in the fridge, ready to await the arrival of your guests! The dip keeps its vibrant colour well.

One of my favourite things about dips, aside from how delicious they are to eat, is their myriad of uses! It is easy to forget just how much you can do with dips. Here are a few ideas to inspire you in the kitchen:
- Use as a salad dressing – some of the dips, such as my Green Goddess Dip, may require a little water to thin them down, but they are delicious tossed with your favourite greens!
- Add to some boiled potatoes for a new twist on the classic Potato Salad! (Or, check out my Potato Salad with Peas and Mint!)
- Have a dip party! Pick a selection of different coloured dips and wow your guests! Or, serve individual dishes of dips topped with crudites – these are always a hit at parties.
- Jazz up your antipasto platter with a couple of dips of your choice. Add some sliced meats, grilled vegetables, cheese and some nuts. My Soy Roasted Almonds are a great addition to a platter!
- Serve with your favourite bruschetta or crostini, and toppings of your choice.
- Dips are fantastic with grilled meats and vegetables, or on top of a burger! Try it with my Tuna Patties!
