Now that I’ve finally made Green Goddess Salad Dressing, I’ve been thinking about creative ways to use this dressing other than just drizzling it on a green salad (although salads with this dressing are spectacular!) Right now the garden is giving me lots of Green Zebra tomatoes, and I created these Green Goddess Tomato-Mozzarella Stacks by imagining how the slightly-citrusy flavor of the Green Zebras would work with the complex flavors in the Green Goddess dressing. And wow! I loved this take on Caprese Salad with Green Zebra tomatoes, slices of fresh mozzarella, and Green Goddess dressing drizzled over.

Of course, there are endless variations on this theme, so feel free to use any tomatoes you’d like and experiment with other kinds of cheese to enjoy with your Green Goddess dressing. And happy tomato season everyone!

Green Goddess Tomato-Mozzarella Stacks

These Green Goddess Tomato-Mozzarella Stacks are simple stacks of green zebra tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and Green Goddess dressing!


  • 8 slices fresh tomato. make all slices about the same diameter (I used Green Zebra tomatoes, see notes)
  • 4 slices fresh mozzarella
  • 3-4 T Green Goddess Salad Dressing (see notes)


  1. Slice tomatoes and fresh mozzarella into slices about the same thickness and diameter. (I made slices that were about 1/2 inch thick, with the mozzarella maybe a little thinner than the tomatoes.)
  2. Make stacks with a piece of tomato, a piece of fresh mozzarella, and another piece of tomato.
  3. Drizzle about 1 T Green Goddess Dressing over each stack.
  4. There are endless variations on this simple salad idea, using different types of tomatoes and other types of soft cheese such as Feta or Goat Cheese.
  5. You could also drizzle something like Basil Vinaigrette or Cafe Rio Style Creamy Tomatillo Salad Dressing over the tomato stacks for another variation.


I am crazy about Green Zebra tomatoes, but you can certainly make this with red tomatoes as well! I used my homemade Green Goddess Salad Dressing, but this would be delicious with purchased Green Goddess Dressing as well.

  2. Green on green. I'm loving it and you made your own dressing too.

  3. I always look for zebra tomatoes at the Farmer's Market in the summer – your Green Goddess Dressing sounds superb – can't wait to try this!

  4. This salad sounds super simple, but amazing! I love it! Who wouldn't want to stuff themselves with fresh garden tomatoes and mozzarella this time of year?

  5. Oh, my! I just posted on cucumber little cups with a dip inside, and then saw your post and decided I must try this recipe soon…

    cucumbers are soooo refreshing!

    Great post, Kalyn!

  6. Meredith, it looks like you're doing a nice job with the blog, keep up the good work.

  9. This is all I need for dinner. Great recipe!

  10. Christie, so glad you're enjoying the Cafe Rio Style dressing recipe. Enjoy those Green Zebra tomatoes too! I'm having some for lunch or dinner today for sure.

  11. I have some green zebra's growing in my garden and two are about ready to pick. Can't wait to give this recipe a try. I use your Cafe Rio salad recipe all the time and I don't think I've thanked you for it, it is delicious.

  12. Gina, thanks, and I love the idea of Green Goddess on a lettuce wedge too!

  13. Kayln, I love Green Goddess Dressing! What a great idea to switch things up. I always serve this on a lettuce wedge with tomatoes, now you have me thinking of other ways to use it.

  14. Tami, thanks! I loved this so much.

  15. Kalyn-

    You had me at Green Goddess – I've made it and talked about it on my blog so often, I should start another blog devoted just to that! This looks incredible – it's a recipe full of all of my most favorite things. So gorgeous 🙂

    – tami

  16. TW, yes, but aren't the Green Zebras just wonderful.

  17. I just had a green zebra tonight. It would have been wonderful to dress it with this Green Goddess!

  18. LimeCake, I think it's making a comeback!

  19. i love the name of this dressing! looks delicious!

  20. Modern Home Chef, it's just always a winner isn't it?

  21. I have done the tomato mozzarella salad with several types of tomatoes and dressings. I can't wait to try this combination.

  22. Thanks Dawn. If you have fresh tomatoes, this is a winner!

  23. This looks great, I need to try whipping some up!

  24. Here's a post I wrote about Green Zebra tomatoes that shows the stages of ripeness. I pick mine when they are just starting to turn yellow-green. Never had any that were what I would call "orange" so maybe yours are a slightly different variety. There's a tomato called Striped Zebra that I don't like quite as much.

  25. Help! How do you know when your Green Zebras are ready for picking? When I bought the plants the seller told me how to know – but I forget. Some of mine are actually tinged with orange. They sure are pretty and I cannot wait to try this recipe with them. Thanks Kalyn!

  26. I am absolutely in LOVE with green zebra tomatoes at the moment! What a great use for the Green Goddess dressing.

  27. Ohh this looks refreshing!

    Thanks for sharing.

  28. Dara, I know I keep repeating myself, but I love the Green Goddess dressing!

  29. Simple and gorgeous! I am definitely going to be trying this Green Goddess dressing.

  30. CJ. great ideas! I especially like the sound of this as a sauce for fish; I would love that!

    Lydia, how I wish you lived next door so I could share the Green Zebras with you. I sent about 10 home with my brother yesterday.

  31. I'm a sucker for color-coordinated dishes, and oh how I wish I had green zebra tomatoes in my garden! The Green Goddess dressing brings back memories for me, too. Thanks for such a beautiful reminder of how popular this once was.

  32. Thinking of other ways to use green goddess? Serve as a sauce with cold poached salmon, turkey or chicken.

    Stir into a cold pasta, quinoa or rice salad.

    Use as a dip fro crudites.

    It makes a great sandwich spread for tuna or tuna salad. Yummy in develied eggs too.

  33. Thanks Elaine! I really loved it, but then how could you not love it with these ingredients?

  34. I haven't had Green Goddess Dressing in years! I'm going to have to make it now. What a pretty dish.
