I’ve been lazy lately (let’s face it, I’ve always been kind’a lazy) and our salads have been topped with…….store-bought dressing! Oh, the horror!
I know, I know! What kind of homesteading-wanna-be am I that I purchase that crummy mass-produced, frankenfood dressing at the supermarket?? Well I’m glad to say that I no longer have any bottled salad dressing in the house and will be (hopefully) making my own dressings from now on.
Not only is it like waaaaaayyyy cheaper - and better tasting - but you can mess with it until it’s to your liking! I suppose the real drawback is that it doesn’t keep for more than a few days. But then again, that’s usually the drawback for any type of homemade foodstuff.
We are garlic and onion lovers here at Krazo Acres. I have the morning Dragon Breath to prove it. I just feel sorry for little Rhiannon because she’s also taken a liking to garlic and onions……who wants to kiss a baby-powdered, soft-skinned, cutie-pie toddler with garlic breath?? Double time on the teeth brushing!Here’s the recipe if you wann’a try it:
1 cup Mayonnaise (Click HERE for homemade recipe)
½ cup Sour Cream (or Greek-style yogurt….which is basically really thick yogurt)
1 Tbsp. White Vinegar
1 Tbsp. Sugar
1 Small Onion, chopped
½ tsp. Salt
1 Clove Garlic, minced or through garlic press (or ½ tsp. garlic powder)
1 Tbsp. Chives (or parsley, gives it nice green specks of color)
Milk – Optional, to make it thinner
Chuck all of the above into blender, zip until onions are chopped up fine. Chill in fridge before using.
