Low-FODMAP ‘Copycat’ Panera Green Goddess Salad Dressing; Gluten-free
April 5, 2019Printer Friendly Version
One of my family’s favorite places to eat is Panera, and I love their vibe too. But it can be tricky for me to find low-FODMAP options on their menu. Last time I ate there I fell in love with the flavor of their Green Goddess Cobb Salad dressing, and was optimistic that it could be an option for me. Then I read the ingredients online: garlic, agave, shallots. Not low-FODMAP.
So, I decided to create my own version! Here is an amazing low-FODMAP ‘Copycat’ Panera Green Goddess Salad dressing. Enjoy it on my low-FODMAP Tossed Salad or low-FODMAP Cobb Salad.
The base herb for this low-FODMAP Green Goddess dressing is basil, which provides healthy anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits. So good for you.

my favorite dressing!
This was my favorite dressing and you have captured it perfectly! I love this on your Cobb Salad too. Thank you for posting this recipe and for your help with us on the low-FODMAP diet.
Thank you so much for your kind words Erica they made our day! So pleased you loved this recipe too. 😊
Wanting to try this recipe! Was curious if regular yogurt can be substituted for greek yogurt? Will it change the taste or simply used for intolerance?
The greek yogurt is selected as it is lower in lactose. It is also somewhat thicker than regular yogurt. However, lactose-free yogurt should be a fine substitute while keeping it low in FODMAPs. Good luck!
I love the Green Goddess salad at Panera. The only thing I would leave out is the corn syrup not good for you.

How long can it be kept in fridge?
Thanks for the question!
We suggest consuming a freshly made salad dressing within 3-4 days for optimal flavor and risk of spoilage. Good luck!
New salad dressing
Tried this for the first time today and it was excellent. Didn’t realize I had forgotten the plain Greek yogurt, so I substituted with vanilla flavored regular yogurt. Still turned out very tasty but will definitely do the green yogurt next time.
Thank you so much! You made our day. Hope you love it even more next time!!
