  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 2½ cups dip

This emerald-green, herb-infused dip makes a nice, light complement to fresh veggies. Serve it with crudités such as sliced cucumbers, sugar snap peas, trimmed asparagus spears, cherry tomatoes, and strips of bell peppers and carrots. Or use it as a spread on wraps.

Green Goddess Dip

Ingredients

  • 3 medium zucchini, peeled and diced (about 2½ cups)
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ cup chopped fresh chives
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Combine zucchini, almond flour, fresh herbs, lemon juice, garlic, and ½ cup water in a blender; blend into a thick dip. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Chill dip in the fridge for 1 hour. (It will thicken as it chills.)

Since no one seems to be answering the peeled vs unpeeled zucchini questions, I will put in my nickle’s worth. The only time I have ever peeled a zucchini is if it is an older fruit (skin is mottled or wrinkly) or one of the huge ones from my garden that has developed a tougher skin. Otherwise, I use the whole thing. I have never had any problems with flavor issues or texture issues as long as the skin is relatively tender. I think the peeling thing (like with carrots and potatoes) is just a long-standing habit with chefs and home cooks that is more about eye appeal than nutrition. I suggest people try not peeling their veggies (and fruit!) and see if they notice a difference in taste. If they do, then peel on. Otherwise, leave the fruit/veggie whole and unpeeled (but well washed) and get the benefits of all the nutrients that are generally stored under the skin.

I’m curious why the zucchini should be peeled too. I’d hate to use all these ingredients only to find out using the peels ruins the recipe but as a rule I use peels whenever possible for nutritional benefits and to reduce waste.
Any insight from the author or others that might have tried? Thanks

I’m planning to make this but am wondering the zucchini should be peeled for this recipe instead of just using the whole thing?

I’m planning to make this but am wondering why I just can’t use the whole unpeeled zucchini?

Hello! Does the recipe really entail 1/2 cup of the chopped herbs?

Zucchini itself doesn’t have a lot flavor, so the fresh herbs gives the flavor and the color. I believe that the dry herbs will not work on this recipe.
