A New Favourite
I think most people appreciate a "tested and recommended" new recipe. So here is my recommendation for today. This is a simple quick salad dressing, for which you likely have all or most of the ingredients on hand. This comes from my friend Donna H, who is a wonderful cook, and a fellow Home Economist. Donna lives in Quebec but spends time here in the summer at her cottage, so we get some time together- usually over a delicious meal. Thanks Donna, for this yummy dressing. (I think this could put Mr. Kraft right out of business!) I love it over a salad of fresh baby greens, red pepper, sliced mushrooms, red onion rings, toasted slivered almonds or pecans, dried cranberries and topped with chevre cheese. It's delicious on a Chef Salad too, with chicken, ham, hard cooked egg and cheddar on top..... Oh heck, it's delicious on any salad....
Red Onion Salad Dressing
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup vinegar (I used half white and half cider)
2 Tblsp. water
1/3-1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 small red onion, roughly chopped
Place all ingredients in food processor or blender and whir for 10 - 15 seconds. Simple as that!
I added some poppyseeds after blending this time... yummmy.....
