With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Creamy French Dressing

Creamy French Dressing

We all have our favorite dressing for salad. I tend toward the creamy dressings.
 This French Dressing is not really French at all but popular in American households for many years. Typical to what you might find in a diner or restaurant, it is inexpensive using staples you probably have in the pantry and so much better than store bought. Easy to make and keeps well in the fridge.

Ingredients are added and mixed in a food processor
Oil is drizzled in creating a creamy emulsion 
that's it!  

Creamy French Dressing
Taste of Home Recipe

1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 small onion, cut into wedges
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup vegetable oil
Salad greens, tomato wedges and cucumber slices or vegetables of your choice

In a blender (I use my small Oscar food processor and it is barely big enough), place the mayonnaise, ketchup, vinegar, sugar, onion, salt and pepper; cover and process until smooth. While processing, gradually add oil in a steady stream.

Serve over salad. Refrigerate leftover dressing. Yield: 2-1/2 cup (20 servings)

There is just something about homemade dressing that can't be matched. Thanks for the recipe.

I used to make something similar when we lived up north except I used something I think was called Chili sauce rather than catsup. With mayo and not much else. We called it Russian dressing which is similar to Thousand Island Dressing which your French dressing resembles in its "creamy" state. :-)

This sounds good. I don't know why I've never tried to make my own dressing.

Sounds and looks luscious. I'm going to save that one, LDH. Thanks. Susan
