Ohio Salad Dressing , the 1923 Fanny Farmer Recipe

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by lynnski LA

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.
