I originally came across this recipe at the Taste of Home website, which they called it Celery Seed Salad Dressing Recipe. While this dressing is good, I also found it to be extremely sweet, plus I thought it had way too much celery seed, (it over powered the taste of the dressing), and it was slightly runny. But... my hubby and I thought it tasted a lot like Henri's Tas-tee Homestyle Dressing. I made this dressing for a 2nd time, modifying the ingredients, but I did not use a reduced fat mayonnaise. I used regular Hellmann's Mayonnaise, plus I only added 6 tablespoons of sugar, a 1/4 cup of white wine vinegar (instead of red wine vinegar), 1 tablespoon of diced onion, and I only added 1 teaspoon of celery seed, which I thought was more than enough. After I chilled the dressing for about 2-1/2 to 3 hours in the fridge, it thickened up nicely, and I thought it tasted much better with the modifications I made with the ingredients. Like I said, this is a good dressing, but you may need to modify the ingredients to your taste.
What an easy, yet totally yummy salad dressing! With only 5 common ingredients, you'd be silly to buy the bottled dressing. I made this several hours before serving so the flavors could blend together. This goes perfectly with pretty much any type of veggie salad. Thanx!
This salad dressing is very quick and easy to make. It does NOT taste "low fat" but has a nice balance of light tanginess and flavorful sweetness which complemented our green salads well without being overwhelming. We enjoyed the recipe a lot ~ Thanks Shirl for sharing it!
