Salad Dressings

Summer means lots of salads with fresh produce. Here are some dressing ideas I use.

Spicy Ranch ( There is a ready to use version made by Hidden Valley that is very good.)

Add some of you favorite Salsa to the Ranch Dressing

Vinaigrette
I always add finely chopped Shallots to my vinaigrette. I find that adds a great flavor

1000 Island

1 cup of good mayonnaise
1/4 cup of chili sauce or ketchup
1 diced shallot
1/3 cup of sweet pickle relish
2 hard boiled eggs chopped
1 stock of celery diced

Combine all of the above and mix well.  Chill for at least 1 hour so the flavors will marry. 

Don't forget just plain Mayonnaise. It can be a very good dressing for chopped salads or even Tuna Salad.
