I still don’t understand why anyone would buy salad dressing when you can make your own. It tastes so much fresher, it doesn’t have all the chemicals and additives, and it is sooo cheap. This simple salad dressing costs less than 2¢ a serving—try to find a deal like that at a store! Also, it tastes delicious and you can customize it however your heart desires.
I published this a couple years ago, but changed it a bit and wanted to post it again. This dressing is really a winner!
1/4 cup vinegar
3/4 cup oil
1 Tbsp mayonnaise (not low fat)
1/4 cup water
salt and pepper
Give the vinegar, oil, and mayonnaise a good whirl in the blender. Season to taste. You can also skip the blender, put all this in a jar with a lid, and shake it up reeeeaaaaaal good!
Italian Dressing: Use balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and Italian seasoning.
Mexican Dressing: Add some lime juice, cilantro, and a pinch of cumin.
Asian Dressing: Use rice vinegar, substitute with some sesame oil, add some soy sauce, and a pinch of ginger.
