Salade Sacha Distel

by Chef Jack Ferneley
(San Francisco)

A salad dressing created and named for popular and beloved French singer Sacha Distel, by Chef Roger Vergé of 'Nouvelle Cuisine' fame. Crisp and clean is the best way to describe this dressing. Each ingredient comes through as a nicely defined flavor adding itself to the whole.

  • 6 stalks fresh celery, chopped fine.
  • 1 green pepper, chopped fine.
  • 1 medium onion, chopped fine.
  • 1 teaspoon salt. 1 teaspoon dry English mustard powder.
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce.
  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar.
  • ½ cup (200g) vegetable oil.
  • ½ cup (230g) white wine vinegar.
  • 14 oz (400g) commercial tomato sauce.

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together well in a chilled bowl.

  2. Place all in a blender and blend until smooth.

  3. Return the dressing to the bowl. Keep chilled, serve chilled. Best used within 2 hours.
Serve spooned over simple green leaf lettuce and any cheese salads.
