  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley minced*
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill minced*
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chives minced*


  • Add all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk until combined! Taste it and see if you want to add any more salt. Refrigerate for about an hour before serving, to give the flavors a chance to marry. Or don't. It will still taste great!
  • See notes about substitutions.


*The parsley, dill, and chives can be replaced with dried herbs. Use 2 teaspoons dried parsley, 1 teaspoon dried dill, and 1/2 teaspoon dried chives. If you don't have fresh garlic you can increase the garlic powder to 3/4 or even 1 teaspoon. If you don't have buttermilk, you can use whole milk instead; increase the lemon juice to 1 and 1/2 teaspoons.
