“During the holidays when I'm visiting with my family, one of the things my mom and sisters and I do is to swap recipes. Mom has a notebook stuffed full of recipes she's saved since she was first married, and this is her favorite dressing from that collection, one she makes on a regular basis. Delicious!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients except for oils and whir until smooth.
  2. While blender is running, gradually add the oils a tablespoon at a time until dressing is well emulsified.
  3. Serve over your favorite salad greens and enjoy!
  4. Store tightly sealed in refrigerator; keeps up to two weeks.
  5. Note: although the recipe does not specify the type of vinegar to use, I'd experiment with various sorts: white, rice, cider, white wine, champagne, or even add a tiny bit of white balsamic.
