This smooth, creamy dressing is great on salads. It comes out quite thick also works beautifully as a dip with vegetable sticks, broccoli and cauliflower florets, or crackers, or as a spread in sandwiches.

I have been looking for kefir recipes and this one sounds just up my street. Thanks.
Cool! Thanks Jude! I love using kefir in recipes, it’s a fun food to experiment with. I’ve got quite a few others on the site already and there will be more coming.
I made this the other day, and it’s a great way to get kefir into my diet, as I don’t like it plain. Thanks! This was tasty.
Did you use water kefir or milk kefir in the Green Goddess Dressing recipe? Looks yummy. I am a water kefir drinker and looking forward to trying some new recipes ~ especially when I over ferment and get a vinegary kefir.
I used milk kefir Linda. But you could probably use something like shelled hemp seed in it, and blend it up really smoothly, to add that ‘creamy’ texture and flavor. Adding some water kefir would also get the nice probiotics in there too.
