  • 1 cup mayo regular or vegan (I use Vegenaise)
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced (or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon capers
  • 1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish without liquid
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Add all ingredients except for the pickle relish into the bowl of a food processor.  Process until smooth, then taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
  • Pour the dressing into a bowl and stir in the pickle relish.  Add up to 1 tablespoon more if desired.
  • Serve with your favorite salad and enjoy!


  • *My preferred brand of vegan mayo is Vegenaise.  I use the soy-free variety, but there are many to choose from including reduced fat.
  • You can use your favorite ketchup, but I recommend using a natural ketchup that's low in sugar and doesn't contain artificial ingredients.  I used just enough ketchup in this dressing to give it tomato flavor without making it too sweet.
  • If you like a spicier dressing, substitute the ketchup with chili sauce or add more horseradish.
