Richard Olney's Fresh Fig Salad

This is a GREAT genius recipe. Does anyone know if you can make the lemon cream in advance?

Yes! It will hold well in the fridge. On a similar recipe (the recent chilled asparagus soup with lemon cream), I noticed that the cream firmed up a lot after time in the fridge, but then loosened as soon as I stirred it. I can't explain why! But thought I'd mention, just in case this happens to you.

Thank you, Kristen. I'll make this in advance, and stir it before serving. (Dinner party planning.) I can't believe you replied! Legend.
