This is an interesting and tasty recipe that was in my mom's collection, she got it from her aunt, who found it in a Fanny Farmer Cookbook, circa 1923. It's an oldie but goodie. So called French Dressing was developed in the early part of the 20 th century, and started with using a French vinaigrettee with ketchup added. It's a recipe that has multiple versions and keeps evolving, but it's very much American. One cooking note: This version of French dressing has a good sharp flavor, so less dressing is needed, it's something to keep in mind while tossing the salad.
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon mustard, ground
- cayenne pepper (to taste)
- 3 drops hot pepper sauce
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons vinegar
- Combine all the ingredients, and shake in a lidded container to mix.
I've been making this for years. Delicious.
