It’s salad time here in the UK. It’s like a bakehouse in my flat as there is scaffolding all over my building which means I have to keep the windows closed. I cannot think of cooking a thing, so Deanna’s dressing is adorning a vast amount of saladings this week.
It is the kind of creamy salad dressing that, if you are a fan of thousand island dressing (which I definitely am), you’ll be scoffing by the spoonful.
Deanna Durbin’s Santa Monica Dressing
1/2 tablespoon chopped pimento*
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 tablespoon onions, chopped fine
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 cup catsup [ketchup]
2 tablespoons chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon tarragon vinegar
1 hard-boiled egg, chopped
1/2 cup thick whipped cream
Mix ingredients well in order listed, and add the 1/2 cup whipped cream.
NB – the placing of the salt and pepper in this list of ingredients seems odd, considering Deanna is very specific about mixing the ingredients in this order. But I forgot the salt and pepper so maybe she has a point…
* Pimentos aren’t easy to get in the UK so I use red peppers.
Thanks Deanna, this dressing is DELICIOUS.
