Success - request sent close

1 cup low-fat mayonnaise

¼ cup Italian flat-leaf parsley

2 tablespoons fresh dill (or 1 tablespoon dried) dill, minced

1 tablespoon minced fresh chives

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar

½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

¼ teaspoon sweet paprika

⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

Dash of hot pepper sauce (I like Frank's)

¼ cup low-fat buttermilk (or more, as needed to reach desired consistency)

With the flat side of a chef's knife or with the bottom or a spoon, mash minced garlic together with the salt. Add garlic paste to a medium mixing bowl with the mayonnaise, parsley, dill, chives, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, black pepper, paprika, hot sauce and buttermilk; whisk until combined. Taste and adjust salt and pepper. Add more buttermilk if desired for thinner texture. Chill 1 to 2 hours to allow the flavors time to blend.

Makes about 1¼ cups.

Cook's notes: The garlic flavor will become more assertive over time. Full-fat mayo and buttermilk may be substituted.
