Homemade French Dressing

I'm on a salad kick, especially since I currently am stove and oven free, at least for a couple of days. This dressing is absolutely divine and tastes delicious on any salad. I just served it on my lettuce, pepper, tomato, cucumber, and lentil sprout salad. Yum!
This recipe takes a total of 2 minutes to make and will make sure that you'll never want to buy store bought French dressing ever again.

P.S. I've now figured out a recipe for homemade French dressing, entirely from scratch- no ketchup, no worcestershire sauce, no refined sugar- and it tastes out of this world! Check it out as well!

Homemade French Dressing

1 cup ketchup (here's the recipe for homemade healthy ketchup)
1 1/2 cups oil (I use palm)
1/2 cup honey, sucanat, or sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1 small onion, chopped
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (optional- see here how to make homemade Worcestershire sauce)

1. Put all ingredients together in a food processor/blender.
2. Turn on and process/blend until it is all a smooth mixture.
3. Pour on your salad.
4. Devour.

So easy. So delicious!

Do you ever make French dressing at home? What is in yours?

I had a whole long post written up on brand names, but blogger decided to lost half of it... so that's why no Needs vs Wants post today. If I have time, I'll get it up for tomorrow.


  1. I just made some last night. Mine has dry mustard powder in it and onion powder insted of onion. Mine is more or less a dry mix that I add the wet to as needed.

  2. Very good! Definitely a keeper! I made it on Friday and it filled up my whole old bottle of french dressing. It's more like California french though. I noticed French uses an egg yolk so maybe that is what gives it a slightly different flavor and lighter color. Great recipe thanks!
