'GRIBICHE' MAYONNAISE SAUCE (by Maman)

'GRIBICHE' MAYONNAISE SAUCE (by Maman)

Sauce gribiche is an OLD-SCHOOL recipe that used to be in vogue a whiiiiiile back as a staple of French cuisine... Maman like its vintage qualities! It's a mayonnaise sauce made with hard-boiled eggs instead of raw, with the addition of capers and tarragon. It's great as a veggie dip or to pour over steak or fish. Bon appetit!
