Tarragon Mayonnaise Recipe


Tarragon Mayonnaise is excellent served with poached fish, crab cakes, steak sandwiches.  The addition of tarragon takes ordinary mayonnaise to a brand new level – It is both flavorful and robust.

My new favorite way to serve this Tarragon Mayonnaise is as a dip for steamed artichoke.
