Ingredients

How to make it

  • Clean the romaine, if needed, and cut into small pieces.
  • Slice the onion and toss it with the lettuce.
  • Salt and pepper the salad (yes, you put the salt and pepper directly on the lettuce and onion, not in the dressing - don’t ask me why…it’s just how my mother did it and it works!)
  • In a 2 cup measuring cup, pour in the heavy cream or half-and-half.
  • Stir in the sugar and whisk well until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Whisk in the vinegar, whisking until the mixture thickens just a bit.
  • Pour the dressing over the lettuce and onions and toss well.
  • Serve immediately.
