  1. Place lemon juice and a generous pinch of salt into a large bowl. Gradually beat in the olive oil until well combined. Taste for salt and sharpness. Beat in a teaspoon or 2 of water if you want to bring the lemon down a notch.
  2. Stir in the pink peppercorns and the scallions if using. Leave to sit for 10 minutes for the flavors to develop before tossing with your salad of choice.

Chef Tips

Pink peppercorns can be found in the spice section of most gourmet grocery stores, and on Amazon. They don’t need to be ground. Their flavor is at its best when used whole.
