Lemon Dijon Salad Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sweet Baboo

I copied this recipe from a Barefoot Contessa episode on The Food Network. Usually I make only half the recipe, using 2 tablespoons of regular mayonnaise instead of the raw egg yolk...seems to work fine. This is one of my family's favourite salad dressings. I guessed at the total number of servings, based on 2 Tablespoons dressing per salad serving, but this may be more or less than your personal preference dictates.

I cut the recipe in half and used mayo for the egg yolk. It is a boldly flavored dressing. I used it on a salad with romaine lettuce, mushrooms, avocado, and cold shrimp. It was a great lunch. Thanks for posting, Sweet Baboo!
