  • ¾ cup mayonnaise regular or lite works fine
  • 3 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoon fresh lemon juice about 1 large lemon
  • 2 teaspoon anchovy paste see notes
  • 4 tablespoon parmesan grated (shredded works ok)
  • ½ teaspoon salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon pepper to taste


About the anchovy: you won't taste it outright, but if you don't use it then you'll miss it. The savory flavor will not be the same.  Just close your eyes and squeeze it in, shake the heck out of the mixture in the jar and it totally disappears and melts with the other ingredients. (You can find it next to the canned tuna fish, it's packaged in a squeeze tube in a toothpaste sized box).
