  • 1/4 cup minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons coarse-grained mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 cup finely chopped watercress
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  1. In a saucepan cook the shallot in the butter over moderately low heat, stirring, until it is softened, add the wine, and boil the mixture until the wine is almost evaporated. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the sour cream, the mustards, the watercress, the water, and salt and pepper to taste.
