Green Goddess Dressing


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup safflower seed oil avocado or "light" olive oil works, too
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup chopped scallions white and green parts (6 to 7 scallions)
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice 1-2 lemons
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. anchovy paste
  • 1/4 cup canned coconut milk full fat I like to use Thai Kitchen Brand


  • Place uncracked egg in a small bowl of hot water (like as hot as your kitchen sink will get) for 3 minutes.
  • Remove from hot water and crack egg into a food processor or blender. Add 1/4 cup of the safflower oil.
  • Blend until combined.
  • Now, with the food processor running, very slowly drizzle the remaining 3/4 cup of safflower seed oil... at the end of this process it should look like mayonnaise.
  • Now add the basil, scallions, lemon juice, garlic, anchovy paste and blend until smooth.
  • Add the coconut milk and process until just blended.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow flavors to mend and dressing will thicken a bit.
