This green goddess dressing is a little bit different. I have made the lemon stand out in this recipe, and then added ginger as a secondary component that stands out. I love the likely health benefits of ginger, and combined with fresh raw garlic this recipe is really a powerhouse of goodness. You can easily adjust the ingredients to work with what you have in your fridge or garden, too. It's a very flexible recipe.
This recipe is perfect for a buddah bowl - it goes with nearly any kind of vegetable or grain you put in there. It's easy to mix in, or put on the side as a dip. It is also great on top of potatoes, rice, or other grains as a topping or sauce. We all love a good potato topping! I love the lemon and parsley together with potatoes, this dressing does not disappoint.
I really like how quickly you can make this one. Just find the ingredients, and blend or food process. Note that the texture and even flavor will be a bit different depending on which appliance you use. Try it in both and see what you prefer!

Substitutes, alternatives, and notes
Parsley and basil: You can use any blend of these two ingredients, or you can use all parsley or all basil. You could even try adding a bit of mint if you wish. I have a herb called basil mint that works well in this dressing.
Green onion: You can use chives instead if you wish. These are loosely chopped.
Ginger: I used a couple "thumbs" of fresh garlic for this recipe. I did not mince the garlic, and I didn't even remove the peel (you don't need to!). If you are using fresh unminced garlic, you may want to use a high-speed blender (depending on how your food processor handles thumbs of ginger).
