From Culinary Tour magazine. Chicken broth can be substituted for the vodka if you wish. This is fun to serve to guests because they are each given a "shot glass" of dressing for pouring over the salad! No ID required.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. DRESSING: In a saucepan over medium-high, heat the olive oil. Saute the shallots until soft about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Deglaze the pan with vodka; simmering until almost all evaporated. Add the V8 juice, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mustard, sugar, horseradish, celery seed, and fresh lemon juice.
  3. Boil the mixture for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and chill. Dressing can be prepared several hours in advance.
  4. SALAD: Toss remaining ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Divide the mixture among 4 plates, arranging on each plate a shot glass filled with the salad dressing, placed to the side.

Made half a recipe for the two of us and DH is still raving about how good this is. Easy to do and great flavors with the salad and dressing.
