Ingredients

Dressing
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, grated
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 medium dill pickle, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pickle brine
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce, preferably Tabasco
  • Kosher salt
  • Assembly
  • 2 large heads Iceberg lettuce, outer leaves removed, cut in half or thirds
  • 1 small bunch chives, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Chef notes

    I really love ketchup and mayonnaise. Not only that, they are two condiments that I generally never make from scratch. Hellmann's mayonnaise and Heinz ketchup are classics and I haven't made a batch from scratch that has tasted as good to me. I like to amplify the flavors with really good pickles and fresh horseradish.

    Preparation

    For the dressing:

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, garlic, ketchup, chopped pickle and pickle juice, horseradish, Worcestershire and Tabasco. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary.

    To assemble:

    Place each wedge of lettuce onto a plate. Drizzle with dressing and top with chives. Serve immediately.
