Mayonnaise citronnée

Dressings: Lemony Mayonnaise

Here’s what’s great when you combine mayonnaise with citrus. Citrus cuts the fat; fat carries the flavor. This combination works for fish, salad dressings, as well slathering on bread before grilling, or even dipping your chicken pieces. Easy.


  • 1 ea lemon, juice and zest
  • ½ cup mayonnaise, homemade or store bought.
  • ~½ tsp salt (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients into a bowl. Mix until combined, Smooth is good!
  2. Store in a closed container in the fridge.
  3. Use as a spread or dressing.

Note: finely diced anchovies may be added to give the sauce more complexity.
