Anchovy and Herb Salad Dressing recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

This creamy salad dressing is especially good for tossing with potatoes, bacon and a little chopped onion. Alternatively, you could spoon it over a green salad or use it to dizzle over chicken or other grilled meats.


  • 500ml mayonnaise
  • 6 anchovy fillets
  • 2 tbsp. each freshly chopped parsley and chives
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped tarragon
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar


  1. Finely dice the anchovies and thinly slice the spring onions on the diagonal.

  2. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, anchovies, parsley, chives, spring onion, tarragon and vinegar. Cover and chill until you're ready to serve. It will last for a day or two in the fridge.

If you prefer, you could use a mixture of natural yoghurt and sour cream in place of the mayonnaise, or you could use light mayo. Recipe serves 8.
