Louis dressing is often confused with Thousand Island and Russian dressing. It’s actually completely different, and done well, quite tasty.
When I was a little girl, wedge salads were all the rage. I hated them because I couldn’t figure out how to eat it. Luckily for me, they came back, and I love them.
I did a big shop on Friday, and almost forgot to get something for dinner, so I picked up some crab and some asparagus. I’m not sure what I was thinking, but when the produce truck that comes to my neighborhood honked his horn, I ran out and got a nice head of iceberg lettuce to make my wedge crab salad with Louis dressing.
Let’s Make Louis Dressing
- ¼ cup balsamic ketchup
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- ½ tsp Worcestershire
- ⅛ tsp Tabasco
- 2 True Lemon crystallized lemon packets
- Mix all ingredients together. Taste for seasoning. Serve over or on the side of salad.
If you don't have True Lemon crystallized lemon, use 1 teaspoon lemon juice instead. The True Lemon is preferred, however, because it is not liquid and you will have a nicer dressing.
One of the things I talk a lot about around here is True Lemon. It’s a great way to keep lemons in your house without worrying about whether they are going to go bad. True Lemon is crystallized lemon and lemon oil without any preservatives or artificial ingredients. Because it’s a powder, it does not affect the viscosity of liquids the way that adding lemon juice will.
Ha! I remember having problems eating Wedge salads when I was little, too. Glad they’re making a come back. Tried the Louis dressing and really loved it. Thanks!
