Russian Salad Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by MichelleNicole

This is a very sweet dressing I found in my mother-in-law's recipe box handed down to her from her mother-in-law. I could eat this every time on a salad. I put all the ingredients in a quart mason jar and shake them up.

I just realized (when I came to post my review) that I messed up in making the dressing....but turned out to be a good thing. I forgot the 'salad oil'. Don't ask me how I did that, cause I haven't a clue. However, it is *fantastic* without it. I love the sweetness, and what a bonus, using something that usually goes down the drain....pickle juice. How clever. It's like recycling. :) Thanks MichelleNicole for a terrific dressing.....which is now virtually Fat-Free. Made for the Garden Forum's July '09 Herb/Spice & More
