  • 1  Cup  mayonnaise
  • roasted cloves garlic, smashed into a paste
  • 2  Teaspoons  Dijon mustard
  • 2  Teaspoons  champagne vinegar
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1  Teaspoon  finely chopped dill, plus 1 bunch

Directions

Add the mayonnaise, roasted garlic, mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Gently fold in the chopped chives and dill.
