  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • 3 anchovy fillets oil or salt-packed, rinsed
  • 1/2 bunch fresh parsley stems removed
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chives chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon leaves (see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chervil (see notes)
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 large lemon zested
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice from 1 lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • In a food processor or blender, add garlic and pulse until finely chopped. Add anchovies, parsley, chives, tarragon, and chervil. Pulse until finely chopped.
  • Add mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper and refrigerate until serving time.


If you can't find fresh tarragon and/or chervil, you can use more parsley or substitute basil or any other leafy herb you like (I love dill in this dressing too).
