I think it's the onion juice and apple cider vinegar that give this dressing a great flavor. I pureed a bit of juicy onion in my Magic Bullet processor and whipped up the dressing in a few minutes. I did micro the sugar mixture (before adding oil) to fully dissolve the sugar. Served this with poached chicken, stawberries, mandarin oranges, red onion, on top of spinach and romaine. We don't often eat just a salad for our dinner, but this was satisfying with the chicken and fruit. Can't wait for the leftovers tomorrow. Roxygirl
This is a really tasty dressing. I made it for some chicken salad and it turned out great. I didn't have onion juice, so I just put about two tablespoons of onion into the blender with the other ingredients. Putting the onion in the blender means no onion chunks, which my kids hate :) Thanks Carrie for the wonderful recipe.
I have made this twice. I loved it the first time and I made it again with a couple changes tonight also with great results. I missread the onion juice as orange juice and substituted red grape juice for it, didnt have enough dry mustard so I topped it up with whole mustard. Turned out great again
