2 teaspoons anchovy paste 

2 teaspoons chopped capers 

2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley 

1 teaspoon lemon zest 

1/4 teaspoon finely minced garlic 

1/4 cup red wine vinegar, plus more if needed 

1 lemon, juiced, plus more if needed

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Combine the mayonnaise, anchovy paste, capers, parsley, lemon zest and garlic. Whisk in the red wine vinegar, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.

If you prefer the dressing to be looser but less acidic, use water instead of vinegar.
