2 cloves garlic

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup prepared or homemade mayonnaise

1/4 to 1/3 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley leaves

2 tablespoons minced fresh chives

1 scallion, trimmed and thinly sliced

1 teaspoon white wine vinegar

Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mash the garlic and salt to a paste with the side of a chef's knife. In a medium bowl, whisk together the garlic, mayonnaise, 1/4 cup buttermilk, parsley, chives, scallion, vinegar and pepper to taste. If the sauce is very thick, thin the dressing with a couple tablespoons more of the buttermilk. Use immediately or store covered, in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.
