Recipe Courtesy of 'The Way We Cook' By Julia Child
When Nora Ephron, director of the Julia Child movie "Julie and Julia," "Good Morning America" cooked up on of Julia's favorite salads, the Salade Nicoise. But what's a good salad without a great dressing?
Mince the lemon peel very finely with the salt, scrape it into the mortar or bowl, and mash into a fine paste with the pestle or spoon.
Beat in the mustard and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice; when thoroughly blended start beating in the oil by droplets to make a homogeneous sauce—easier when done with a small electric mixer.
Beat in droplets more lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
