You’ll need to make a few modifications to the traditional recipe to reduce the carbohydrate content.
By using full-fat Greek yogurt or sour cream instead of traditional sour cream and opting for a mayonnaise without added sugars, you can create a keto-friendly version of Green Goddess dressing. This recipe contains minimal carbs while still providing the creamy, herby flavors you love. Remember to choose high-quality, low-carb ingredients to maintain the keto-friendly nature of the dressing.
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise (look for a brand with no added sugars)
- 1/2 cup full-fat Greek yogurt or sour cream
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 anchovy fillets, minced (optional, not going in my mouth)
- In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Greek yogurt or sour cream, parsley, basil, chives, tarragon, anchovies (if using), garlic, and lemon juice.
- Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Adjust the consistency by adding more mayonnaise or Greek yogurt/sour cream if desired.
- Cover the bowl and refrigerate the dressing for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld together.
- Serve the keto Green Goddess dressing as a dressing for salads, a dip for low-carb vegetables, or a sauce for grilled meats or seafood.
