Preserved Lemon Citrus Dressing
“This spiced preserved-lemon dressing recipe brings any salad to life, but it's especially delicious combined with lentils or grains, such as quinoa, barley or freekah.”
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil
¼ cup chopped preserved lemon peel (see Tip) or 1 teaspoon lemon zest
1Cook paprika and cumin in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until very fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and add lemon juice, salt and pepper. Whisk in oil, then stir in preserved lemon peel (or lemon zest).
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days; bring to room temperature before using.
Preserved lemons are lemons that have been soaked in a salt-lemon mixture for at least 30 days. Their salty sourness is a signature flavor in Moroccan dishes. Find them at specialty-food stores or online at mustaphas.com.
