Mormor's Creamy Danish Salad Dressing




One of my memories of my grandmother "mormor", was to watch her cook in the kitchen.  You could see how happy she was to prepare a dish for our family.  Sometimes she prepared a salad with the meal.  Crucial for a tasty salad is a good dressing! The salad would have her Creamy Danish Salad Dressing. 


I would like to introduce to you how to make this Creamy Danish Salad Dressing. This is very simple to make with just a few ingredients.....probably ingredients that you already have! There is a chance you already have the ingredients in your kitchen.  If not, for a few dollars you could make a salad dressing that tastes delicious just plain lettuce or any good quality salad mix. 
 
  • Ingredients
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1- 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • salt and pepper
  • dill (optional)

  • Kitchen Utensils
  • bowl
  • measuring spoons
  • a whisk
  • citrus juicer or squeezer

Instruction:
Whisk the vinegar, sugar and cream together until it thickens. Season with salt and pepper and place the dressing in the fridge.

First Step
Squeeze a lemon into a bowl

Second Step
Add vinegar, cream and sugar into the same bowl. Whisk the mixture until light and fluffy.  If you like the dressing sweeter, you can add more sugar to taste.  Also, salt and pepper is optional too


If you like the salad dressing a little sweeter, you can add a little more to taste.

Third Step
Put the dressing for 10 minutes in the refrigerator to allow it to thicken slightly.

Preparing the Salad:
Wash and clean the lettuce. Tear into bite-size pieces. Drizzle the dressing over the salad.

If you like to have a mixed salad, this creamy Danish salad dressing tastes great on it too.  



Just drizzle, toss and serve! You'll get the wink and a nod from your family and friends that they are enjoying the salad dressing.
