Easy Mint Dressing

This herby mayonnaise dressing is really versatile and can be used in so many different dishes. It is such a quick and easy recipe to make as all the ingredients are simply blended together in a food processor. It is creamy with a delicious mint flavour which works perfectly with potatoes, salmon, chicken and many other meats and vegetables. You'll have this dressing made in no time and it will add that extra something to whatever you choose to serve it with.

  • food processor


  • 1 c mint leaves, packed (50g) washed
  • 1 c curly-leaf parsley, packed (60g) washed
  • 2 eggs large or extra large
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp sugar see note 1
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled and crushed
  • 1/4 c white vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp wholegrain mustard optional
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1.5 c mild flavoured oil grape seed or vegetable oil
  • freshly ground black pepper, to season
  • extra sea-salt to taste


  • Place all the ingredients (except the oil) into the bowl of a food processor. Process for a few seconds until everything is combined well and the herbs are all chopped (scrape down the sides half way through).
  • With the motor running, slowly drizzle the oil in through the feeder tube. Take your time doing this step. It should be a very slow drizzle. Taste and season with extra salt (I often add up to 1/4 tsp more to taste). Season with freshly ground black pepper. Pour the dressing into a jug or container, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours to allow the dressing to thicken slightly and for the flavours to develop.
    Makes approximately 3 cups. Recipe quantities can be halved.
    Storage: Keep refrigerated. Will last for 1 week in the fridge.


Note 1: If you prefer a slightly sweeter dressing, you can add up to 2 teaspoons for this recipe. Taste the dressing and adjust. I add 1-2 teaspoons depending on the bitterness of the herbs.
