You’re going to want to put this Mexican green goddess dressing on absolutely everything. Tangy, bright, creamy, and kicky, it hits all the flavor high notes and makes even the simplest dishes taste special.

When served over this springy mix of romaine, pea shoots, and grilled corn, it’s the perfect compliment to any alfresco meal, and ideal for celebrating Cinco de Mayo in a fresh and healthy way. Also try it as a dip for crudités, or as a lighter alternative to hollandaise over eggs and asparagus for Mothers Day.

Serves 4 people

Total Time: 30 minutes

  • 1 green jalapeno, deseeded if you want it less spicy
