Dreaming Of Spring Salad Dressing

For a printer friendly version of this recipe, click here

This dressing has been in my repertoire since early 1990! It is just plain yummy on fresh greens. I have made all sorts of adaptations to the original recipe and they are all, if I may say so, excellent!  I am always fond of using fresh herbs, they have such a “live” taste!

Makes Approximately 1 1/4  Cups

½ cup each canola & EVO
1 egg
4 ½ tsp. red wine vinegar
1 ½ tsp. sugar
1 ½ tsp. mayonnaise
1 small clove garlic, smashed
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. dried tarragon, crumbled, or 2 tsp. chopped fresh
¼ tsp. Tabasco sauce
½ tsp dried thyme, or 1 tsp. chopped fresh
1 very small piece of onion

Combine everything in a blender & blend until smooth and light. Place in a jar & chill until ready to use. Dressing will keep 3 days in the fridge.
