My Favorite Oil and Vinegar Dressing

Total Time

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)

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!

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

This is perfect and so easy. I used Splenda in place of the sugar making it unnecessary to warm the vinegar. This used to make Recipe #316781. I now have leftovers to dress salads for the coming week.

I just started making my own dressing and this was very good. I did use Splenda as that is all I buy. I made this as directed except I used a bit less salt. Very tasty.
