5 Min
Method:
No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

1
wedge preserved lemon, seeds removed and rinsed under cold water (approximately 1/4 wedge)
1/2 c
whole milk plain yogurt (i do not recommend reduced fat yogurt)
5-6 Tbsp
extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp
sugar
1/8 tsp
white pepper, to taste
2-4 Tbsp
half and half, for thinning (you can use whole milk or heavy cream if desired)

Step-By-Step

1Slice the preserved lemon wedge into smaller pieces (rind and all). Add it and the remaining dressing ingredients to a non-reactive prep bowl or glass measuring cup.

2Blend using an immersion blender or mini food processor. Taste and adjust; correct flavor if necessary. If the dressing is too thick, thin with some half and half.

3Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. The salad dressing tastes best if it has had a chance to rest for at least 1 hour but preferably 3 or more hours. After having refrigerated the dressing for most of the day, I tasted it just before serving and adjusted the flavor by adding about 1/2 teaspoon additional sugar.

4The dressing was tested on a simple salad of: mixed greens, tomatoes, raw purple asparagus, green cabbage, few sliced raw mushrooms, little bit of fresh mint, cucumbers and carrot shavings. We also tried it as a sauce for freshly steamed vegetables and as a topping for Palestinian musakhan.
