TIPS FOR MAKING CABBAGE DRESSING:
  1. Chop up everything finely. The beauty of this salad that made it go viral on TikTok is how everything is finely chopped in a way that makes the salad perfect for dipping with tortilla chips.
  2. Use a food processor for chopping. While that may sometimes release extra moisture in the vegetables, it’s a not a bad idea chop them that way, especially since you can then use the food processor for make the green goddess salad dressing.
  3. Don’t skip the olive oil in the dressing. The olive oil helps to emulsify the dressing to create a thick and creamy green goddess salad dressing. Otherwise the dressing may get watery or separate.
  4. Don’t add too much dressing. You can alter if you want to add all the dressing or just a little bit of dressing. It’s up to you on how you want the texture.
