Summer is my very favorite time of the year. I love that my boys get to be home all day. I love not having to pack lunches or do homework. I love being outside. And I LOVE eating fresh fruits and veggies. Today I decided to make a salad with some pickings from my garden. I could eat a green salad everyday and be happy.
Although I must admit that I am a little picky about my salad dressings. Making salad dressing at home is simple, less expensive, better for you and tastier than buying it. Simple French Dressing is a recipe that my mom got from a friend a long time ago. I have been making it ever since and still love it.
Measure oil, ketchup and vinegar.
Pour into a blender and add salt, pepper, garlic salt and dry mustard. Blend just until combined.
Pour into a container and serve with a green salad.
Simple French Dressing has a perfect balance between the sweet and tangy. It makes any green salad pop with flavor.
