salad dressing recipes

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have a few good salad dressing recipes to share? The girls at the sorority love vinagrettes and I am especially interested in citrus recipes. The ones I find on recipe sites just seem to lack the wow that a good dressing delivers.

Thank you :)

Flavorful Dressing

If you like a little extra flavor in your dressing, try this -

Take a bottle of plain vinegar and put in some garlic cloves and jalapeno peppers, then let sit for at least a week. Substitute this vinegar in a basic vinaigrette or creamy italian style dressing for a lot of extra flavor.

Honey, lime, cilantro, oil.

To go with what Pinot said, try Ponzu instead of soy sauce.

Anneke, that sounds yummy. I was going to make crab cakes sometime in the next week and was pondering what sauce to serve them with. I might try this.

Toast the cumin in a dry saute pan until fragrant. Meanwhile combine 1 part lime juice to 2 parts vinegar. Add cumin and some honey along with some salt and pepper. Allow flavors to marry for a couple of minutes before adding the oil. Adjust seasoning and sweetness.

Jalapeno Ranch Dressing:
Jalapenos
Fresh Garlic
Cilantro
Dried Oregano
Shallot
Lime Juice
Splash vinegar (if neccessary)
Buttermilk
Mayo
Sour Cream
Pinch sugar
Salt

Combine all solid ingredients with buttermilk and puree until smooth. Mix in mayo, sour cream, lime juice, and vinegar to consistency and season with salt and pepper. Balance with just a pinch of sugar if neccessary.
