Dijon Salad Dressing

Make Your Own Dressing

Salads are one of my favorite meals.  There are so many ways to jazz up a salad, either with a dressing, fruit or adding a protein.

One of the top New Year’s Resolutions is always to loose weight, so I thought that this recipe would fit nicely into many folk’s meal plans for 2012.  Maybe you are on a full-fledged diet and exercise routine or just eating a few more salads each week, this dressing is a perfect addition to your recipe box.

The recipe comes from my friend Marissa, who brought a delicious Spinach Salad to a dinner party recently.  She had been experimenting with dressings and had came up with a perfect combo.  (I love having friends that cook!)

Try adding this dressing to a spinach salad and add chopped eggs, mushrooms, blue cheese and some crumbled bacon.

Special Dressing
3 T. chopped onion
2/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup olive oil
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. celery seed
1 T. prepared Dijon-Style Mustard

Prepare the dressing in a blender by combining the onion, sugar, salt, oil, vinegar, pepper, celery seed and Dijon mustard. Blend until smooth.
