Greens with Quick Cream Dressing

To accompany the main course of Stuffed Scallops on Mushroom Rice I made Jacques Pépin's Mother's recipe, Greens with Quick Cream Dressing. Just before you serve the greens (6 to 8 cups of torn Boston lettuce is nice with this), put 1/4 c. heavy cream, 1/4 tsp. each of salt and pepper into a bowl and whisk vigorously for about 15 seconds, or until a little bit frothy. If it seems too thick, add a tablespoon or two of water. Stir in 1-1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar. Add the greens, toss briefly and serve immediately. Amazingly, this is low cal – 1 T. of heavy cream is 60 calories, while 1 T. of olive oil contains 120 calories – and it tastes wonderful!
