Chopped preserved lemon, fresh lemon juice, cumin, garlic, paprika, and cayenne are mixed together in this assertive dressing that holds its own tossed in a chunky summer squash salad or brushed on a grilled piece of fish or chicken.

What to buy: Look for preserved lemons in gourmet grocery stores or online; or you can make your own. If you can’t find preserved lemons, substitute 1 tablespoon of finely grated lemon zest.


Place all of the ingredients except the oil in a large bowl and whisk to combine. While whisking constantly, add the oil in a slow, steady stream until it’s fully incorporated. If not using immediately, refrigerate the dressing in a container with a tightfitting lid for up to 3 days.
