Bloody Mary Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

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.

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.

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.
