Creamy Lemon Dressing


Need a new salad dressing? This one is very old-fashioned and might sound strange, but when you think about it, it's not so strange. It has lemon rather than vinegar, and heavy cream instead of oil, but the importance is in the balance of sour-salty-sweet and creamy.

Try it with nice, soft lettuce (not iceberg, but romaine might be good), and maybe some cucumbers and tomatoes. I could easily eat an entire bowl of this - it's very addictive!

Creamy Lemon Dressing

(printable recipe)

1/2 lemon, juiced
2-3 tbsp heavy cream (might also be called double cream, or whipping cream in some countries)
1-2 tsp sugar
black pepper

Whisk together all ingredients just before serving. Toss with salad and serve right away.

Recipe in Swedish:
Krämig citrondressing

Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to recreate a salad I had in a restaurant with creamy lemon dressing, grilled herbed peach, crispy Prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, on a bed of spring lettuce. Absolutely wonderful!

I made this for dinner and wow it's delicious and very refreshing. Not heavy like some creamy dressings. Thanks for sharing it.
