Today I continue my crusade against commercially produced salad dressings, and championing the virtues of the home made salad dressings, by showing you how quick, easy, and delicious they are. Today, my war is against the French! Well not exactly. More accurately, my private little war is with the French inspired pre-made dressings, that I am sure, would make any self-respecting French chef cringe!
By the time you drive up to the store and purchase your favourite bottle of French dressing, I will have blended my home made French dressing recipe, chopped a salad eaten it, and have moved onto a yummy dessert. OK, well maybe I am overstating my claim just a tad, seeing as most everybody has an endless array of bottled dressings stacked in the door of their fridge within arm’s reach! I admit that it is convenient.
However, once again, I will chant the “fresh is best” motto like a broken record that just begs to be replayed. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have a bottle of French dressing in their fridge. Give this home made version a go, and see if it doesn’t give you food for thought.
**Add in the vinegar, lemon juice, and salt at the end, and add to taste. This will ensure success with this recipe. So you can dress up, as opposed to having a dressing down when you don’t pass the acid test!
