Salad Dressings

Sometimes, you just want a good salad and find out you have no dressing.  Here are some that can be made with items usually found in the pantry.

I found these in the book, The New Cookin' with Home Storage by Vicki Tate.

Poppy Seed Dressing
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbl. grated onion
1 tsp. poppy seeds
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/3 cup vinegar
1 cup oil
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.  Blend with vinegar and onion.  Add oil slowly, a little at a time, blending after each addition.  Stir in poppy seeds when mixture has formed a homogeneous dressing. ( I sub dry onion for the minced.)

Honey Dressing
2/3 cup oil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 tsp. honey
1/2 tsp. crumbled basil
Combine in a jar with a tight lid.  Shake well and chill until needed.

Thousand Island Dressing
1/2 quart mayonnaise
1/2 cup catsup
1/2 cup relish
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Mix all ingredients together and serve.

Creamy Salad Dressing
2 tsp. dried onion
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbl. parsley
1 cup mayonnaise
Put all ingredients in a jar and mix well.  Store in fridge. (I have a large can of buttermilk powder.  I use what I need and put the rest in the freezer until needed.)

Catalina French Dressing
1 can tomato soup
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbl. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup vinegar
2 Tbl. minced onion
1 Tbl. prepared mustard
1 Tbl. paprika
Mix all ingredients well.  Store in a jar in fridge. (I sub dried onion for the minced.)
