Creamy caper and herby salad dressing: it has staying power
Recipe type: salad dressing and sauce
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 cup
We use this recipe most often to serve with green salads, but it's also quite good slathered on chicken or fish.
  • 4 T mayonnaise
  • 4 T plain Greek yogurt
  • 6 T capers, drained and coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • 6 T fresh flat parsley, chopped, or other herbs (dill is good too, if you have it)
  • 2 T Dijon mustard
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 T good extra virgin olive oil
  1. Low tech: In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise and yogurt with the capers, red wine vinegar, herbs, mustard, and some pepper.
  2. In a slow, steady stream, whisk in the 6 T of EVOO. Taste. Adjust seasonings to your own preferences.
  3. OR high tech: Do the same as above, only use your blender, which will yield a smoother product. Your choice, darlin'!
