Could you use something else besides mayonnaise for the base of the dressing?
Amanda H. June 6, 2010
You could try yogurt.

Just imagine if someone sent in a recipe involving grilled lamb and creme fraiche combined?!

We might just faint.

This looks great! And Amanda I do believe you have mentioned wanting grilled lamb with other things before, to which I say yum :-)
mrslarkin June 4, 2010
Do you think Amanda likes lamb as much as Merrill likes creme fraiche? :-)

Funny it reminds me that the copy editor of my NYT book noted that I needed to stop suggesting Triscuits so often. What can I say -- I like them!
