  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Grate your parmesan.
  2. Add all ingredients to a small bowl (or add them to a measuring cup like I do - I measure out the mayo first).
  3. Give everything a good stir (or whisk it) until the dressing is smooth.
  4. Serve immediately or chill first. 
  5. Dressing will keep in the fridge, covered, for a few days.

Recipe Notes

  • I encourage you to play with the ingredient quantities if the taste isn't exactly what you're looking for. I'll occasionally make this without measuring and I usually end up adding more Worcestershire and Dijon than written.
  • Nutritional information is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. Ingredients can vary and Salt & Lavender makes no guarantees to the accuracy of this information. Serving size in this salad dressing is one tablespoon (it makes about a cup in total).
