RECIPE// Green Goddess Salad Dressing with Gippsland Jersey Buttermilk

by Gippsland Jersey

If you’re looking for a dressing that will make you feel one step closer to heaven - look no further than our Green Goddess Salad Dressing, created by Gippsland local and gorgeous foodie Natasha Vorogushin (@tashcancook on Instagram!). 


This dressing is zingy, tangy and slightly sweet, packed with fresh herbs, lemon, vinegar and the unique tartness of Gippsland Jersey Buttermilk! Tash developed this versatile recipe for one of our events earlier this year, and the quantities can be multiplied to cater to a crowd. It can also be made ahead of time so you can have it in the fridge ready to go for a party. It thickens a little after a day, making it even creamier and more delicious! 


Our buttermilk is made with live cultures, which means that it contains good bacteria that can be beneficial for your gut health. Along with this, buttermilk also packs protein, vitamin B12, riboflavin, calcium and phosphorus and is low in fat, which is why it’s such a great choice for adding more goodness to a simple salad.
