When was the last time you made something and thought to yourself, “Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes!”?

Oh, I’m so glad you asked. It was Tuesday afternoon when I made Green Goddess Baked Potatoes from Oh My Veggies. I taste tested the dressing and nearly cried. It was an emotional day. I had physical therapy that morning and was able to lift my right arm all the way over my head for the first time in a year. You have no idea how liberating that moment was. Or maybe you do if you’ve been trapped in the cage of an injury. Either way, emotions were running high when I was blending herbs, avocado, garlic, Greek yogurt and a little unsweetened almond milk together.

I feel like it’s pretty needless to say at this point…but this Green Goddess Dressing is delicious.  

Oh My Veggies serves this Green Goddess Dressing over baked sweet potatoes stuffed with sautéed garlic, onions, broccoli and chickpeas. The whole meal is utterly divine and really my only comment is that half a sweet potato + toppings is plenty of food to keep you full and fuel your body for good things.

But really, this dressing. You guys, this dressing. I’ve made it twice this week. And one of those times was a double batch.

For lunch today, I dipped (smothered) a boiled artichoke in it. I have big plans to dress a spinach salad with it tomorrow and I’m probably going to dream about the breakfast sandwich I have planned for after my double digit run this weekend. Toasted whole grain bread, a generous smear of Green Goddess Dressing, fried egg, arugula, tomato and maybe some pickled red onions. Yes, definitely pickled red onions. I just decided. Next week when I have a couple girlfriends over to watch the mega hit Dead 7, we are definitely having this as dip for fresh veggies.  

Even if the sweet potato veggie extravaganza doesn’t tickle your fancy, make the dressing and go wild.
