The combination sounded good to me on paper, so I tested it and liked it! Please try to avoid using commercially prepared herbes de Provence as homemade is much, much better. A really good recipe I recommend is: Herbes de Provence. Perfect for that next French countryside themed meal or for the Easter feast. I don't know how Provincial this recipe is, but the name sounded catchy so it stuck. A CG Original. PS> If you have any safety concerns, please substitute store bought mayonnaise for the homemade. The verdict is still out on whether a wee bit of Dijon would work in this recipe. If I try it, I'll update the recipe with my findings.

- 2 tablespoons homemade mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 teaspoon herbes de provence
