Chop the Herbs

Chop the herbs finely. It’s a good idea to chop more than you think you’ll need so you can adjust to taste. You’ll also need 1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup buttermilk, 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder and a lemon.

Fold to Combine

In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, buttermilk and mustard powder with 1 tablespoon each chopped mint and dill, and 1 teaspoon chopped chives. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, about 1 tablespoon. Fold to combine, then add salt, pepper, herbs and lemon juice to taste, keeping in mind that the flavors will intensify over time, especially those of the herbs.
