Homemade French Dressing
I found it!
Zee…best “family approved” French dressing!
I had tried making a homemade French dressing before…the family didn’t really like it. So I’ve just been buying it. But with my dh having to watch what he eats, I’ve been reading labels! Yeck! Do you realize what is in some of this stuff? Someone said, “Why do we make ourselves a salad with veggies, trying to eat healthy and then top it with dressing full of fat and chemicals?” And lowfat dressing is just as bad or worse for you!
Makes ya think, doesn’t it?
So I began researching recipes for a French dressing, that tasted good, looked good and had the best ingredients, preferably with honey instead of sugar. I found this recipe in an old cookbook, checked out the ingredients and went to work! It was easy to make, I just dumped the ingredients into a blender and blended it until it was smooth. Like I said, so easy! I don’t think I’ll be putting out any cash for French dressing anymore!
