Fresh Shrimp Wraps with Green Goddess Dressing
Thanks to a friend of mine, whenever I write, say or think of green goddess dressing, I giggle. I was raving about it to her the other day and her response was “that sounds like a stripper’s name…or a porn star.” And because I’m a 15 year old boy, I now chuckle because that’s all I can think of now. I hope all you can think of now when you look at these fresh shrimp wraps with green goddess dressing (bahahah) is a stripper and porn star.
You’re welcome for that. Name connotations aside, this sauce (or dressing) is seriously divine. It was super popular in the 70’s and has had a resurgence of popularity lately. It’s usually made with ranch, mayo, sour cream, chives, tarragon and a blend of other spices. Michelle Bernstein, who I met in NYC a few weeks ago at a culinary round-table event, did a demonstration on how she makes her dressing lighter. She subbed in an avocado and uses Greek yogurt in place of ranch. Since I’m constantly watching my weight and am addicted to Chobani, I mirrored my own dressing after hers.
To give it a bit more flavor, I added some cilantro (surprise, surprise). Guys, I could eat it with a spoon it was that good. Slathered on a fresh shrimp wrap, it just sang. The bold flavor and slight tang from the lemon was a beautiful compliment to the fresh shrimp and seasonal veggies. This is honestly my new go-to for summer lunches.
If you’re looking for a light, flavorful, crisp summer recipe, you’ve found it with these fresh shrimp wraps with green goddess dressing. And totally try saying “green goddess” without a teenage boy giggle. Just try it.
