The Easy Creamy German Salad Dressing You Need To Start Using
A dressing can make or break a salad, and if you want an easy dressing without mayo, oil, or vinegar that's still creamy and not watery, try the German dressing salatsauce.
Salatsauce is made of heavy cream, sugar, and lemon juice. The butterfat in the cream and the tang of the lemon juice create a rich, thick, and flavorful dressing.
This dressing comes together in seconds, and best of all, it’s versatile and customizable. Try adding herbs like dill, or use half and half or sour cream in place of heavy cream.
To make salatsauce, simply mix together the cream, lemon juice, and sugar until you have a uniform texture. Then, throw in your salad ingredients and toss to coat.
Salatsauce is typically used to dress simple green salads, but the rich dressing also stands up well to hearty salads or side dishes with robust root and cruciferous veggies.
You can even use salatsauce as a dressing in dishes like coleslaw by dressing it up with dill and tarragon, or use it in your next potato salad.
