French Dressing With Sour Cream

Recipe by Zurie
READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 1 cup


  • 60
    ml lemon juice, freshly squeezed (1/4 cup, or use lime juice)
  • 10 -15
    ml sugar (2 - 3 teaspoons, please start with 2 tsps and adjust later)
  • 34
    teaspoon salt
  • 14
    teaspoon paprika
  • 1
    teaspoon mustard, smooth, Dijon
  • 14
    teaspoon pepper, white
  • 60
    ml sour cream (1/4 cup, can use creme fraiche)
  • 180
    ml olive oil, virgin (3/4 cup)


  • Squeeze lemon or limes over a sieve into a medium mixing bowl.
  • Whisk in the other ingredients (not the olive oil) until very smooth, and the sugar has just about dissolved.
  • Whisk in the olive oil in a thin stream, almost as for mayonnaise. The dressing will thicken slightly -- it won't become thick, and it's not supposed to.
  • Taste the dressing: you might want to add more lemon juice. Mine needed a squeeze more than stated above.
  • Decant into a salad dressing container or bottle.
  • Great over any type of salad.
