Try These Dressings On For Size (and Flavour)!

Hey, everybody!  I do apologize for this edition of the FOODIE FRIDAY blog being so short.  This has just been one of those weeks in which everything has gone topsy-turvy for whatever reason. 

But, I promised you all a recipe, and a recipe is what you will get!  And in the spirit of it being summer, and not a lot of people liking to cook in superheated kitchens due to the heat and humidity outside, I thought I'd make this post salad themed.

Specifically salad dressing themed.  In one of my mother's retro themed cookbooks (I photocopied some of the pages), I have some recipes for homemade salad dressings that are sure to add a little bit of kick to your salads.



4 tbsps. salad oil
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 tbsps. vinegar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup grated Canadian (or American) cheese

Mix ingredients in the order given; shake thoroughly.  Serve with green salads.


Dice about 2 ounces of bacon and fry to a golden brown.  While fat is hot add 1/3 as much vinegar as there is fat in the pan.  Season with black pepper, salt, and a little sugar.  Pour on green salads or potato salad while the dressing is warm.

And, for those of you who like fruit salads, here's an orange dressing that is just perfect for you.


1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. butter
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Sugar to taste
Juice of 1 orange
Whipped cream

Cook together egg, butter, a dash of sugar and fruit juices.  Stir until it thickens.  When cool, taste, and if necessary, add more sugar.  Fold in 1/2 whipped cream, but do not take away the tart flavour.
