Save Recipe


1/2 teaspoon dry English mustard dissolved in 1 tablespoon water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1/3 cup pure olive oil

2 tablespoons prepared chili sauce

2 tablespoons finely chopped watercress leaves

2 tablespoons chopped cooked bacon

1/2 cup each diced carrot, celery, fresh-cooked beets, red peppers, yellow peppers, cucumbers, and tomatoes

1 small Bibb lettuce, washed, dried, and torn into bite-size pieces

1 1/2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce


  1. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade, combine the mustard paste, salt pepper. Pulse the mixture together briefly. Then add the vinegar a little at a time. While continuing to pulse, add the olive oil in a very patient, slow, steady stream to produce a smooth, creamy, mayonnaise-like emulsion. At this point, the dressing can be refrigerated for up to 1 week. When ready to serve, stir in the chili sauce, watercress, and bacon to complete the classic "21" Lorenzo Dressing.
  2. Put the remaining salad ingredients in a large bowl and toss with the dressing.
