Green goddess soup
( SERVES 4 )
Green Goddess is an American term originally given to a dressing. It has been fused into many dishes and the recipe has made a comeback. Packed with fresh green herbs, a little sour cream and lemon juice, the creamy dressing is great served on crisp lettuce, as a dip or drizzled on fish, pizzas or soups. This is a healthy green vegetable soup topped with a dash of dressing.
