My Favorite Oil and Vinegar Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

Excellent on a salad topped with blue cheese, dried cranberries, mandarin oranges and pecans but good on any green salad. I have made it with Splenda and even though it isn't quite as good IMHO, it is still a nice dressing. (The servings amount is a guess)

I used this with a salad that included feta and crasins. It was easy to make, but lacked something.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To prepare dressing, warm wine vinegar slightly.
  2. Add sugar and stir to dissolve.
  3. If you don't warm the vinegar, you will have trouble getting the sugar to dissolve.
  4. Allow to cool.
  5. Add onion, paprika and salt.
  6. Stir well.
  7. Add olive oil and blend.
  8. I prefer to put it in a bottle and shake it.
  9. Pour over salad and enjoy!
