Reading "Daisy's World" often leads to the discovery of delicious food. I will always recommend that kids learn to eat great food at a young age whenever possible. Learning to eat great food leads to better meal choices. Allow your kid the knowledge of the variety of foods in the world and allow them to choose to eat these foods.
Daisy recently visited San Francisco and discovered "Green Goddess Dressing" at "The Palace Hotel" and published her adventure attending the 34th America’s Cup in San Francisco. As a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, I can honestly say I had forgotten about this dressing and am looking forward to trying it once again.
From the website of The Palace Hotel (click on the link for a printable copy):
The History of the Green Goddess Dressing
The Green Goddess Dressing was created at the Palace Hotel in 1923 by
Executive Chef Phillip Roemer. Chef Roemer created the dressing for a
banquet held at the Palace. The event was honoring actor George Arliss
who was the lead in William Archer’s hit play “The Green Goddess”.
The original Palace recipe:
1 cup Traditional Mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup snipped fresh chives or minced scallions
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
3 anchovy fillets, rinsed, patted dry, and minced
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Stir all the ingredients together in a small bowl until well blended. Taste
and adjust the seasonings. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate.
Since the dressing was created, the Green Goddess Salad became a
permanent menu item at the historic Palace Hotel. In the early years,
when there was limited access to fresh produce, the dressing was served
with shredded iceberg lettuce, canned vegetables and a choice of
chicken, shrimp or crab.
Over the years the salad has evolved. Today, the salad is referred to as
The Garden Court Crab Salad and features farm fresh mixed baby greens,
fresh locally grown California vegetables and a generous portion of
dungeness crab meat. The salad is offered with a choice of dressings,
one of which is, of course, the famous Green Goddess.
