Creamy Green Sauce

  • Author: Misfits Market
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


The one cup of greens can be a mix of whatever you have in the fridge! Here, we mixed basil with parsley, but you could also add fresh dill, tarragon, or chives.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 cup packed parsley and basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup of minced shallots or scallions
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 anchovy filet (or, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon of finely grated Parmesan, or even 1/2 teaspoon of fish sauce; whatever you have to punch up the umami flavor)
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Put all ingredients into a small food processor and mix until well combined. Your sauce will be thicker if you use Greek yogurt, so for a thinner sauce you can use regular non-fat yogurt or sour cream.


Have leftover sauce? You can pour onto freshly boiled, skin-on potatoes to make a quick potato salad or, even better, you can combine the sauce with mashed potatoes to make a Green Goddess Mashed Potatoes side dish. Yum!
