Notes about this recipe

  • DKennedy on March 26, 2016

    Made this salad dressing recipe today to serve over a cobb salad. Halved the ingredients for the dressing, using a meyer lemon, omitting the sugar, and splitting the oil amongst avocado oil, olive oil, and walnut oil. Tart dressing that contrasted nicely with the rich avocado, ham, turkey, and chick peas featured in the salad. For greens I used bitter and buttery. Very nice and would make again.

    This salad is all about perfectly balanced contrasts -- bitter endive and radicchio dressed with a bracingly tart dressing that cuts through the chewy fattiness of the pig's ear.
