From Elle Second cookbook. This rich lovely sauce goes well with any roast meat and makes a different sauce for grilled meat.


  1. Crush cheese with fork.
  2. grind walnuts to a fine powder in processor.
  3. add the cheese and mix together in processor.
  4. pour in the oil very slowly, as if making mayonnaise, until a thick sauce is achieved.
  5. season well and stir in the paprika.

Holy Cow, this stuff is GOOD!!! So simple and quick to make - we spread it on toasted croutes.

Lindsey, this was a GREAT sauce!! As the stars say, we loved it!! We had it on thick slices of underdone beef tenderloin. A suggestion: lightly roasted walnuts might bring out their taste (a guess, as I did not do it). I don't think, however, that the recipe will stretch to 6 unless each person only eats one slice with a spoon of sauce -- it depends on appetites! We had a small spoon of the sauce on each slice of meat! Next time I would add perhaps a dash of hot sauce or ground black pepper, as the sauce, delicious though it is, could be more assertive with red meat. I had the feeling that, although it sounds like a "strong" taste, it might actually go well with oily fish. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe!!! ONE DAY LATER: Lindsey, I upped the stars from 4 to 5!! A tip: change this recipe to read: "Make a day ahead, cover and keep in fridge." There was some of this dressing left over, with which I did exactly that. I've just put in a finger and tasted it again ... and it is superb!! Suddenly the flavours I expected to be present last night is there now!!! It seems that, as in so many cases, this recipe needs time for the flavours to meld. ☺
