Western Dressing

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Bec6206

This dressing can also be used as a marinade for meats. From "Cooking a la Heart"- Delicious heart healthy recipes from the Mankato Heart Health Program. When I was little, the only time I had salad was at my grandma's house, and it could only be with Western dressing. Ok, that still holds true. But still, I figure a home made version of the dressing would be pretty cool! Oh, and have you ever tried just putting some ketchup on a bowl of salad? It's great- (Just don't put too much on- less than a tablespoon is perfect for a bowl).

Nice tart, sweet flavor. Will make this for good now instead of buying Western Dressing.
