Indulgent and lightly flavored, this dip is the perfect partner to colorful spring veggies such as green and purple endive; assorted radishes; and blanched, chilled asparagus and haricots verts (tiny green beans).

Ingredients

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • Assorted vegetables

How to Make It

  1. Finely grate garlic into mayonnaise using a fine grater or zester. Stir in lemon zest and juice.
