  • Worcestershire sauce — Look for a vegetarian or vegan Worcestershire sauce if you follow a specific dietary preference.
  • Fresh parsley and chives — Finely chop the herbs to evenly distribute their flavors throughout the dressing.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a spicier version, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or a few dashes of hot sauce.
  • Adjust the consistency by adding a little water if you prefer a thinner dressing.
  • Store the dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  • Experiment with different herbs like tarragon or basil to customize the flavor.
  • Drizzle the Creamy Louis Dressing over grilled shrimp or crab cakes for a delightful seafood experience.

Presentation advice

Garnish the Creamy Louis Dressing with a sprinkle of paprika and a sprig of fresh parsley to add a pop of color and enhance its visual appeal. Serve it in a small bowl or ramekin alongside the main dish or salad.
