The Finest Salad Dressing...

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Life is a bit crazy right now, what with 2 houses and jobs and laundry and well you get the picture.


This weekend has been painting and pruning and then tomorrow it is a return to "work" which will be nice, a bit of a rest actually!

But we still must eat and I found this salad dressing recipe in one of my books, it caught my eye because of two ingredients: bay leaves and bitters. I have a fondness for unusual ingredients and bitters really fills that bill. If you have made my version of Penzy's  Bay Leaf Seasoning. you could substitute 1/2 t for the crumbled bay leaves.


The Finest Salad Dressing
adapted from:  The Melting Pot, Food From Many Lands
Height Cooperative Nursery School, November 1961


Combine all ingredients and shake well:


1 c oil
1/4 c vinegar
2 T mayonnaise
1 t sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t MSG - I did not use
2 bay leaves gently crushed
1/8 - 1/4 t garlic powder - I used 1/8 t
pinch of oregano
dash of Augostra Bitters


Truth in blogging:  next time I will blend the mayo with a touch of the oil so it is lump free.

Enjoy!

  2. Visiting from Cookbook Sundays. Your dressing sounds great, I love homemade dressings, they really make salad special I think.

    Very neat old cookbook as well, I love paging through those types and finding recipes that no one makes or remembers anymore that are actually really good.

  3. Hi Melynda - what a cool cookbook. I'm totally intrigued by this dressing - can't wait to give it a go. I love bitters, and am fascinated by the idea of combining that with bay leaves in a dressing.

    Life is full on for me too right now - which is why it's taken me two weeks to stop by :-(

    Thanks for sharing at Cookbook Sundays.
