Vegan Sauce Riviera/Beurre Montpellier

[Vegan Green Mayonnaise with Butter or Cream Cheese, Pickles, Capers and Anchovies]

...that's quite the title isn't it?...

...Julia says this is a good sauce for sandwich spreads...and since I was wanting some Garbanzo Bean Tuna Salad...I thought it'd be perfect...

...you start by making some mayonnaise...and then you make that green...Vegan Mayonnaise Verte [Green Herbal Mayonnaise]
...I used grapeseed oil and almond milk for the mayonnaise this time...
...and I didn't whisk it by hand...
...the immersion blender is the perfect tool for this job...thick and creamy mayonnaise...
...now gather the add-ins...and there are a lot of them...
...you need green onions - I used fresh, tarragon - I used dried, and spinach, watercress and parsley...all of which I used frozen...and that makes the base green herbal mayonnaise...which is quite good in its own right...
...and then add a couple of tablespoons each of capers, sour pickles and we subbed black olives and nori granules for the anchovies...and we used Earth Balance for the butter...I had vegan cream cheese (of course) but since the alternative title is Beurre Montpellier...I decided to use vegan butter...
...so then I just mashed up some garbanzo beans that were cooked in the instant pot...
...and stirred in the sauce...
...and gave it a taste...oh my goodness...this is definitely going to become my go-to vegan tuna salad dressing...
...spread on some whole wheat bread...
...it made a perfect Vegan Tuna Salad Sandwich...

Substitutions
