Ingredients (11)

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cornichons or gherkins
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
  • 1 teaspoon capers, drained
  • 1 small garlic clove, mashed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup mild-flavored vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • Cayenne pepper


The flavors of this classic American dressing are very similar to those of tartar sauce and gribiche. Serve it with salad greens, steamed vegetables, sliced hard-cooked eggs, potatoes, or tomatoes, or chilled seafood.


  1. 1Combine the mayonnaise, cornichons, mustard, parsley, tarragon, capers, garlic, and vinegar in a blender or mini-food processor and process just until combined. While the machine is running, add the oil in a thin, steady stream, and process until the dressing thickens and is fairly smooth. Season with salt and cayenne. Will keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
