French Dressing (Our Favourite Version of an Old Classic)

Prep Time
Cook Time
Ready In

"We love homemade dressings, have enjoyed many variations of this old classic but none quite like this old family recipe that went missing. The lost was recently found tucked in an old cookbook. While many of the dressings seemed similar none tasted quite like our missing recipe. Suspect it's the malt vinegar and the equal portions of vinegar and sugar we favour. It was and is my dh's favourite. I now make his with Splenda. These days I mix my dressings in my Magic Bullet and refridgerate, come mealtime a whizz or a quick shake and it's ready to pour into my salad server."

I like to make my own dressings as you know exactly what goes in it. This is one I will be coming back to often. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.

This site has a reputation for having the best recipes so I had no doubt that this dressing would be anything less than 5 stars, I can't imagine using any other recipe now that I've tryed this one I used a clove of garlic instead of the powder and yes also the malt vinegar, a dressing worthy of serving at a 5 star restaurant, thank you for sharing
