Laura’s Dressing

ImageFirst let me start by saying I really do NOT like store bought salad dressings for the most part.  There’s an occasional exception every now and then but I really find it hard to beat a homemade dressing! Laura’s dressing recipe came from a good friend of mine that passed away far too young.  She was always so much fun and had great recipes to share.  I came across this recipe written on a tiny piece of paper and thought I’d give it a try.  Very good basic Italian dressing recipe to use when you don’t have fresh herbs on hand. There’s no excuse to buy that stuff from the store now!
tsp. salt

tsp. cracked pepper

tsp. paprika

tablespoon sugar

½ teaspoon dry mustard

1 clove garlic, crushed

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

⅓ cup vinegar of choice

cup salad oil or olive oil


Mix all ingredients in a jar with a screw top lid and shake vigorously.  Or mix dry ingredients with vinegar and slowly add oil and whisk together so oil gets emulsified. Let sit for 24 hours for best flavor.
