This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word salad cream
a creamy salad dressing resembling mayonnaise
a creamy, yellow salad dressing made of an emulsion of oil in water with egg yolk, vinegar and other ingredients
Salad cream is a creamy yellow condiment based on an emulsion of about 25-50 percent of oil in water, emulsified by egg yolk and acidified by spirit vinegar. It may include other ingredients such as sugar, mustard, salt, thickener, spices, flavouring and colouring. It was introduced in the United Kingdom in the 1920s, where it is used as a salad dressing and a sandwich spread. Due to the higher cost of ingredients during periods of rationing in the United Kingdom a flavour similar to mayonnaise was achieved in the creation of salad cream.
