2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

1 tablespoon fresh chives

1/2 cup sour cream 

1/3 cup grated Parmesan

Salad:

2 iceberg heads, cut into chunks

1/2 cup grated Cheddar 

2 carrots, shredded 

1 cucumber, sliced

Directions

  1. For the dressing: Mince the garlic with a knife and then sprinkle about 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of salt on it and mash it into a paste with a fork. Chop the parsley, chives and basil very finely and add to the garlic.
  2. In a bowl, combine the garlic mixture, mayonnaise, sour cream, Parmesan, cayenne, paprika and Worcestershire, tasting frequently and adjusting the seasonings as needed. Chill for a couple of hours before serving. Thin with a little milk before using if desired.
