Creamy Tarragon Dressing

LivFarms’ Creamy Tarragon Dressing is an exquisite blend of rich mayonnaise and tangy Greek yogurt, creating a lusciously smooth texture that serves as the perfect base for the distinctive flavors of fresh tarragon. With its slight anise-like sweetness, tarragon adds a unique herbal note that is both aromatic and subtly pungent. White wine vinegar introduces a bright acidity that cuts through the creaminess, while Dijon mustard adds a sophisticated tang. This elegant dressing's creamy and herbaceous profile makes it ideally suited for the LivFarms’ Romaine lettuce. To complement this dressing, consider adding grilled chicken or shrimp for a protein boost, avocado slices for their buttery texture, and cherry tomatoes for a pop of juiciness and color. A sprinkle of crumbled blue cheese could also add a wonderful textural contrast and depth of flavor.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and Greek yogurt until smooth and well combined.
  • Add white wine vinegar, fresh tarragon leaves, and Dijon mustard to the mixture. These ingredients will bring a delightful tanginess and herby flavor to the dressing.
  • Season the dressing with salt and pepper to taste. Start with a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper, then adjust according to your preference.
  • Whisk all the ingredients together until the dressing is smooth and well-blended. Ensure that the tarragon leaves are evenly distributed for a balanced flavor.
  • If you prefer a thinner consistency, you can add a bit of water or milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired thickness.
  • Allow the dressing to chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving. This helps the flavors meld together.
