"A well-made salad must have a certain uniformity; it should make perfect sense for those ingredients to share a bowl."
-Yotam Ottolenghi, Chef
This technique of using white beans in salad dressings is one introduced to me by a colleague. It works really well, giving a smooth and creamy feel to the dressing and adding a lot of fiber.
This dressing offers a creaminess but with the addition of lime juice and cayenne a bit of additional zing that is great for Southwestern- and Hispanic-flavored recipes.
Make sure that your salad greens are dry, dry, dry before tossing the dressing with the them. If they are damp the dressing won’t stick as well and you will have to use more. Usually 2 tablespoons of a well made dressing (one that is well emulsified) is enough if the greens are dry. A salad spinner is the key to drying lettuce and a must have in any kitchen.
