1. Mix equal parts mayonnaise & plain yogurt. For a healthier option, substitute low fat mayonnaise and 0% fat plain yogurt! 

2. Next, add the juice of ½ a lemon. Add more or less to adjust recipe to your personal taste!

3. Add ½ to ¾ teaspoon sea salt.

4. Cut in an assortment of your favourite fresh herbs. We recommend chives, dill, French tarragon and a bit of Italian parsley.

Herb scissors are a phenomenal kitchen tool for easy cutting of any type of fresh herb.

5. Eat fresh, although you may store leftovers covered in fridge for up to 7 days.

Also great on steamed beets and zucchini pancakes!
