Spicy Tomato Vinaigrette

The horseradish really does come through in this dressing. I can see this doing equally as well on a chilled seafood salad, but I used it on greens and it really made for a zesty, spicy salad.

Creamy Herb Salad Dressing

This dressing has a nice rich flavor – almost like that of the old Axelrod onion dip that I can’t find in stores any more. It’s very oniony and has just the right amount of spices. This also makes a great dip for veggies.

Homemade French Dressing

This tangy, savory dressing really hits the spot over field greens. And you’re certainly not going to find a bottled dressing weighing it at only 18 calories per tablespoon. So whip some up and pour it on…thick ! 🙂
