This recipe comes from the family of my best friend in college, Amanda. The recipe was originally handed down written to make a gallon of the dressing so we were always too lazy to do anything but halve the recipe ended up making 2 quarts of the stuff at a time. At the end of the term when we were broke and there was nothing in the fridge but an old cabbage and some juicing carrots we would make a slaw with this dressing. Cheap and easy, but yummy! Here are quantities to make a pint of dressing, scale up as desired :) Chile flakes to taste, of course!
Fresh herbs give this classic dip its clean, fresh flavor and distinctive color; don't use dried herbs. For an accurate measurement of boiling water, bring a full kettle of water to a boil, then measure out the desired amount. The dip can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 day. Season with additional lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste before serving. Recipe is from the new “America’s Test Kitchen Healthy Family Cookbook.” Yield: Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
This is a wonderful alternitive to real mayonnaise. I have been put on a strict diet and this saves the day! Makes a great salad dressing(I add a little honey), spread for sandwiches, or dip. Adapted from Raw and Living Foods.
This is popular in Spain, Mexico, Central America and the Southern USA.
This dressing has wonderful flavour with virtually no fat. Try this on a Spinach and Strawberry salad....it will blow your mind and your tastebuds. Taken from her 'Heart Smart' cookbook, she notes: "This dressing can also be made with other mild vinegars such as raspberry, sherry, Champagne or a good red wine vinegar." NOTE: after several reviews, I'm going to adjust the water amount to 1/2 - 1 cup. Thanks for the suggestions everyone. :)
Finally! I found out how to make a wonderful bleu cheese dressing at home. I've tried so many, with all kinds of ingredients, but none of them came out wonderful until this one! And it's so simple, anyone can make it and feel like a real gor-may type chef! I usually use light (not the non-fat)mayo and sour cream and it's incredibly rich.
This is a great dressing to have on hand to put on anything from a simple green salad to sliced tomatoes. I like to mix up a batch on Fridays to have on hand for the weekend. I found this recipe on the Epicurious website.
Recipe by Our Best Bites - You'll just need a few ingredients that you may already have on hand--canola oil (olive oil was too strong), rice or white wine vinegar (regular white vinegar would also work), lime juice, sugar, Kosher salt, lots of garlic, and cilantro.
