    Zurie's Note:

    From Paris down to Provence we had this kind of salad dressing over the freshest greens, and I could not find out exactly how this creamy dressing was done. There are, I think, 2 nearly similar recipes on this site. But I have tweaked them, and this variation is really gorgeous. Soooo easy. The photo shows it drizzled over nothing more than romaine halves with spring onions, but obviously it will be great if tossed with any salad.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed (30 ml)
    • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar (15 ml caster sugar)
    • 1 pinch sea salt (Maldon or pink Himalayan salt, or just table salt, to yr taste)
    • 1 teaspoon mustard, Dijon, smooth (I used a teaspoon)
    • 1/4 cup fresh cream (about 63 ml)
    • 1 pinch coarse black pepper


    1. 1
      Put the lemon juice in a bowl, and add the sugar. Whisk a little, for the sugar to dissolve. (Do not use granulated sugar, as it takes too long to dissolve).
    2. 2
      Add rest of ingredients, and whisk. Leave a while. The dressing will thicken a little.
    3. 3
      If using with loose-leaf "mesclun" or young green salad leaves, toss with very little drressing, only enough to slightly coat the leaves.
    4. 4
      In the photograph I used more dressing, on 2 halves of a romaine, (here called cos lettuce) to drench the halves in the dressing.

      I made this dressing 2 ways. The first round I made it as posted and loved the clean, fresh taste! I don't care for salad dressing that is so strong you can't taste anything else-yours is lovely! This morning I made your recipe again, using buttermilk in place of the cream. I added 1 tablespoon of minced chives and one minced clove of garlic. OMG I'm in heaven and can't wait to use it tonight. I'm going to dress a warm new potato salad with it-I know!!!!! 2 new dressings, one great recipe! Thanks for posting Zurie. Made for Gideon's Celebration of Life Cook-a-thon.

      I made this to use on a salad yesterday for lunch. It was delicious! The only change I made was that I used just a smidge less sugar (personal preference). Definately a keeper. Thanks for posting this, Zurie. I wish you only happiness in your future. Prayers going out to you. (Made for cook-a-thon in memory of Zurie's DH)

      Mmmmm, so simple and yet so GOOD!!! I made this exactly as written (with one exception) and it was perfect. We don't have regular access to yellow lemons here, so I substituted mandarinas - a very sour mandarin orange/lime. It was so tasty! Can't wait till my next visit to the States to try it with "real" lemons! Nevertheless, I think this will be my go-to salad dressing from here out. The citrus really shines through and despite the cream, it is very light tasting. Thanks for posting, Zurie! Made in loving memory of Zurie's DH, Gideon. I love how Dibs put it - Gideons CELEBRATION OF LIFE!
