Recipe Type: Dressing
Author: Pike Place Market Recipes by Jess Thompson
Serves: 8
This is the Salad Verte dressing from Le Pichet.
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (from 3 oranges)
  • 1 small shallot, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup roasted whole hazelnuts
  • 1/2 cup sherry vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 cup soy or canola oil
  1. In a small saucepan, bring orange juice to a simmer over medium heat.  Cook until the juice has reduced to about 1/2 cup, then cool.
  2. Just before serving, combine the cooled juice, shallot, 1/3 cup whole hazelnuts, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper (to taste) in a blender and add oil in a slow, steady stream as mixture blends.  You want the consistency of heavy cream. Be careful not to over mix as the texture will break if it gets too warm.
  3. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper, if needed.
