SO, as you know, I’m not all about the detox thing… I don’t believe in cleanses… juice diets… I just think I don’t have the basic will power or even desire to put myself through that, even for a few days… but what I CAN do, is balance things out… Because, for me, life is all about the balance of everything and anything…Our bodies need stability… no binges… no shock diets… it’s just not what our system was meant to take…
Do you know about this Green Goddess Salad..? Well actually, it was the dressing that carried this name, and not the salad itself… popular in the 70’s, according to whatscookingamerica.com:
A salad dressing that is a mixture of mayonnaise, anchovies, tarragon vinegar, parsley, scallions, garlic, and other spices.
The Green Goddess Dressing created at San Francisco’s Palace Hotel (now called the Sheraton-Palace) in the 1920s. The Palace Hotel was built in 1875 and was San Francisco’s first grant lodging hotel. The Palace Hotel was considered the largest hotel in the western United States.
The hotel’s executive chef, Philip Roemer, named the dressing for English actor George Arliss (1868-1846), who stayed at the hotel and also ate in the Palm Court restaurant during the time he performed in the play called The Green Goddess. This play was considered the best play of the 1920-21 Broadway season and it later became on the earliest “talkie” movies in 1930. The actor frequently complemented San Francisco’s marvelous weather and proclaimed that it induced a healthy appetite.
