More Salad Dressing Recipes...

A big THANKS to Lynn and Jill for sharing their recipes!!! Even more yummy ways to save money and eat well...

Lynn's Caesar Salad Dressing

1 garlic Clove
1 Large Egg
1 Tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 TBsp. Lemon Juice
1/2 of a small can of Anchovies..... OR 1/2 of a small can of shrimp bits
Dash of Pepper
1 Cup Salad Oil
Put the first 6 ingredients into a blender. Blend on highest speed. Then while it's still blending, pour 1 cup of salad oil in VERY SLOWLY so it incorporates and becomes thick and smooth. This should take less than one minute. Chill for at least 2 hrs.
Mix with Salad greens or bite sized romaine lettuce pieces JUST before serving. Toss with croutons, parmesan cheese, or bacon bits if desired.

Lynn's Maple Syrup and Mustard Dressing

1/4 Cup 100% Maple Syrup (Or you can just use Maple flavored pancake syrup)
2 TBsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
2 TBsp. oil ( I like to use Virgin Olive Oil - healthy!)
Mix the above ingredients with a wisk. Just before serving, toss with mixed greens, sliced apples, shredded old-aged cheddar cheese and roasted pecans.

Lynn's Greek Salad Dressing

1/2 Cup Salad Oil
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 Cup Chopped Parsley (I use dried from Food storage)
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1/8 Tsp. Pepper
1/8 Tsp. Oregano
1/8 Tsp. Garlic Powder
Wisk together. Toss with Salad greens, diced cucumbers, tomatoes, and whole pitted black olives, if you wish. Sprinkle with Feta Cheese or cubed cream cheese.

Lynn's Cobb Salad Dressing

1/3 Cup Vinegar
1 Tsp. Salt
1/4 Tsp. Pepper
1/2 Tsp. Dry Mustard
1/2 Tsp. White sugar
1/8 Tsp. Garlic Powder
2/3 Cup Salad Oil
1/4 Cup Blue Cheese, crumbled (Optional)
Wisk together. Toss and coat any green salad with this.

These are our most used and favorites at our house! Have used nothing but homemade dressings for years. They just taste better when fresh. : D


This is dressing is wonderful. Not everyone has buttermilk on hand but I usually do for pancakes. Don't know how much cheaper it is.
