Yummy Salad Dressing

I finally found a salad dressing that isn't loaded with "junk" and we all like.  I fix a  raw, green salad  every night to eat with our meal.  It's just spinach and whatever veges we have on hand.  I know it's not near enough greens for our day but it's some!  :)

Celery Seed Sweet & Sour Dressing
1 small onion
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/2 C vinegar
3/4 C raw sugar or honey
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp real salt
1/2 C olive oil

Blend everything except oil in blender.  Add oil.  Blend on high for a few minutes.
That's it!!!  So cheap and so yummy.  Of course, having the right kitchen tools is so helpful.  I use my Bosch mixer for this!  I tried to figure out a few times what would be my most used/favorite kitchen tool.  This one may be it,, but my Whisper Mill is a close second.  The kitchen aid mixer is right up there too!  But my Bosch mixer is used for anything a blender would be used for and it's super heavy duty and sharp!(In the summer months, it's gets used tons with ice and fruit to make yummy smoothies!!!)   I love it!  And it's a MUST have for doing all the bread I do!  I couldn't even imagine mixing and kneading 12 loaves every other week by hand!!!    It was quite an investment for us so that also makes it so valuable to me. (I think we may have used our tax refund money one year for them).   I'm SO thankful for the help these tools bring  to help my day go quicker and help with our healthy eating. 


  1. Nice! Thank you for this! I've tried a couple of other homemade dressing recipes and they weren't all that great. This one sounds really good :).

  2. Mmm. Sounds good. I will have to try it!
