  • 1 cup parsley packed (see my note about stems)
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach packed
  • 3 tablespoons chives roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon green onions chopped two inches into the green (1 small green onion)
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise (see my notes in the post about alternatives)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • dash freshly ground black pepper


  • In a blender or food processor, blend the parsley, spinach, chives, dill, green onoins, garlic, and dried tarragon.
  • Add the sour cream and mayonnaise to the food processor. Add in half the amount of lemon juice, honey, salt, and black pepper called for. Blend the salad dressing and then taste it. If it tastes too bitter, add more honey. If it doesn't taste bright enough, add more lemon juice, if it is too bland, add more salt and pepper. The amounts above reflect what I ended up using.
