In Eva Longoria’s cookbook, “Eva’s Kitchen” (Clarkson Potter, $29.99), the actress offers up a San Antonio favorite, this dressing from Grey Moss Inn, 19010 Scenic Loop Road.
“I am lucky to live near the Grey Moss Inn, one of the most beautiful restaurants in San Antonio, which also has the most amazing wine list in the area,” she wrote, probably before her life took a few turns that we won’t go into a food site. “I love to eat there whenever I can, and this dressing is one of the reasons. After tasting it the first time, I once again found myself in a restaurant kitchen asking for the recipe. The chef graciously agreed. Try it with tender romaine hearts or spoon over asparagus, tomatoes or steamed green beans.
Grey Moss Inn White French Dressing
1 large white onion, peeled and quartered
6 small garlic cloves
1/4 cup[ mayonnaise
Juice from 2 limes (about 1/4 cup juice)
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
In the work bowl of a food processor, place the onion and garlic. Process until puréed, scraping down the sides of the work bowl once or twice. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl and add the mayonnaise, lime juice, vinegar, salt and pepper. Whisk together until thoroughly blended.
Use at once or store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Makes about 1 3/4 cups.
