If you are someone that want to have a good mayonnaise but cannot stomach raw eggs , then this is the sauce for you. Today, I am glad to share with you the recipe of the Gribiche Sauce. A mayonnaise made with boiled eggs which is then enhanced with fresh herbs capers, gherkins.
This classic French sauce has been kind of forgotten and in my opinion it is really a shame because it is simply delicious. I believe this is one of the sauce to know for all Francophile and french food lovers alike. the sauce Gribiche is and ideal sauce to put on your table for lunches with friends or family. The “Gribiche” as we call it in France is to be serve along a plate of cold meats, fish or even as a stir through with sliced boiled potatoes for an instant potatoes salad.
