Green Goddess Chicken Salad

Green Goddess dressing-a mix of mayonnaise, sour cream, herbs, anchovies and lemon-was created at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in the 1920s, as a tribute to an actor starring in a play called The Green Goddess. The creamy dressing is typically tossed with a green salad, but it's also addictive in Melissa Rubel's chicken salad, made with a rotisserie bird.
