Low-FODMAP ‘Copycat’ Panera Green Goddess Salad Dressing; Gluten-free

Printer 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.

Yield: slightly more than 2 cups

Serving size: 2 tbsp

Prep time: 15 min

    • Greek yogurts vary in lactose content, check for your tolerance to a particular brand

  • Blend until well combined
