A very popular salad dressing on a comeback trail..!

After making this a couple times, I discovered that it seems to get sweeter as it sets. I started processing the sugar by itself until it was very fine. Then, taking a hint from one of Marg@Cayman Design's recipes, I slightly warm the red wine vinegar in the microwave and then process it and the sugar together until the mixture appears fairly clear. I then proceed and follow the directions as written. I do always use 1 teaspoon onion powder in place of the fresh onion. It is a wonderful dressing!! A staple in our house, as we have taco salad quite often. Mini R, thank you for posting.
