Bottled Italian dressing is a popular marinade, but this is so much fresher, and you can change the herbs to suit your taste. The small amount of mayonnaise helps emulsify the ingredients. Use for steak, pork, lamb, chicken, fish, scallops, shrimp, or vegetables.
In a medium bowl, combine the vinegar and wine. Whisk in the mayonnaise until the color is milky white and there are no lumps. Whisk in the fresh garlic, parsley, oregano, sage, dried onion and garlic, red pepper flakes, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Slowly whisk in the oil until completely incorporated.
Make Ahead Tips
The marinade will keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
