Salad Dressing

The local grocery stores provide daily e-mails with recipes and this is one courtesy of Price Chopper.  This dressing is so easy.  You can whip it up in no time and it will be fresh and not have preservatives.  I used my smoothie blender and it worked perfectly, but you can use a full sized blender or a food processor.

Salad Dressing

2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


Place all ingredients into the blender or food processor; blend until smooth and pink in color. Store in the refrigerator. Ingredients will separate during storage, just give it a vigorous shake and it will mix up nicely.

I used this dressing on a salad I made with the following ingredients:

Chopped Romaine
Sliced radishes
Sliced red onion
Sweet cherries, pitted and halved
Toasted pecan halves
Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Mix together and drizzle with the dressing above and enjoy as a nice side salad, or make a big plateful for lunch or dinner.

About Me

My photo

My career is in IT.  Cooking and photography are among a few of my hobbies. In my spare time, which is most weekends I tie on my apron and exercise my creativity by trying new recipes and adapting them to my tastes. I also have a passion for photography that I incorporate by taking photographs to go along with the recipes I post on my blog.  
I also enjoy travel, both near and abroad. Meeting new people, new experiences and cultures and oh, not to mention the food! I hope you enjoy my blog.
