(Salads And Sauces) - (The Art Of Living In Australia)

2 Eggs--2d.

1 gill Oil--2d.

1/2 gill Vinegar


Total Cost--41/2 d.

Time--Three-quarters of an Hour.

Put the yolks of the eggs into a basin, sprinkle over the salt,
begin to stir them with a wooden spoon, dropping in the oil very
slowly. The sauce must be kept thick, and the oil added very slowly.
When it is quite thick and smooth, pour in the vinegar slowly, and it
is ready for use. This is considered the finest of all salad dressings.
If made some time before it is required for table, it must be kept
cool. It ought to stand in ice, and the vinegar should be added just
before serving. It may be used for any kind of salad instead of the
ordinary dressing.

Other Recipes


Beat the yolk of one egg in a cold dish with a silver or wooden fork. If
the weather is very warm, place the bowl in a larger vessel filled with
chopped ice. When the egg is beaten add one-half teaspoon of salt, dash
of red pepper, one-half teaspoon of English mustard and olive oil, drop
by drop, being careful to beat well without reversing the motion for
fear of curdling. When the dressing thickens, begin adding the vinegar
or lemon juice, drop by drop. Then add more olive oil, then more acid,
continuing until one cup of olive oil and two teaspoons of vinegar or
lemon juice are all used. Be sure to have all the ingredients and dishes
as cold as possible.
If the mixture should curdle, begin immediately with a fresh egg in a
fresh dish and when it is well beaten add carefully the curdled mixture,
drop by drop.
To serve twenty people one pint of mayonnaise is required.

Before making this dressing for salads, Mary placed a large soup plate
or a shallow bowl in the refrigerator, also a bottle of olive oil and
two egg yolks. All should be quite cold. Put the yolks on the cold
plate, add 1/4 teaspoonful of salt, the same of mustard. Mix well and
then, with a fork, stir or blend the olive oil into it drop by drop.
After about 1/2 cup of oil has been blended in, add lemon juice, a
drop or two at a time. Then more oil, and when it becomes very thick
add more lemon juice. A pint or even more oil may, with care, be
blended into two yolks. Care must be taken not to mix oil in too fast,
or the egg and oil will separate, making a mixture resembling curdled
custard. If this should happen, take another plate, another egg yolk,
and begin over again, blending a drop or two at a time in the curdled
mixture. Then add more oil and lemon juice as before.

Other Recipes

Salads play a most important part in all conventional suppers. Chicken,
lobster, crab, duck, tongue, and lamb salad take the place of other meats,
although for a large supper there is no objection to serving a meat salad
following a hot course. If one can make a good mayonnaise dressing, salads
are the easiest of all refreshments, and are most acceptable to the guests.
