3/4 cup Homemade mayonnaise
1/2 cup Heavy cream (* see substitutions below for dairy free option)
2 tablespoons Fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons Fresh chives, basil or oregano, chopped
2 teaspoons Fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
1/2 teaspoon Fresh garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Fresh dill, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Sea salt
1/4 teaspoon Fresh ground black pepper
Substitutions and Notes:
  • Dairy free: If you want a dairy free dressing, then instead of using heavy cream, use fresh coconut cream mixed with a bit of fresh coconut milk or coconut water, and mix it to be the thickness of heavy cream.
  • Soy free: To ensure your dressing is soy free, use a mayonnaise that is soy free.

  1. Whisk the mayonnaise, cream, parsley, chives (or basil or oregano), lemon juice, mustard, garlic, dill, sea salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  2. You can control the thickness by adding more or less cream.
  3. Use immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Though this has a few more ingredients, it's actually quite simple. And so delicious! Enjoy!
