Quick & Easy Creamy Salad Dressing

I love ranch dressing ... and I really love blue cheese dressing ... but alas, I'm trying to watch what I put in my body for health purposes ... so I've been avoiding those 2 dressings since the first of the year ... except those days when I get to go out to my favorite local bar/pub and get a bacon blue cheese burger ... then all bets are off.

But the other 99% of the time? No thank you.


And now, I'm getting a little tired of the great balsamic and olive oil blend that I make quickly every morning (1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/2 tsp dijon mustard, dash of salt and pepper and shake it up) ... so when I saw this recipe over at The Kitch I knew I had to give it a try for something different!!

Original recipe is found here ... and of course, when I made it, I made modifications ;-)



Here's how I did it!

2 tsp dijon mustard
3 tbs mayo (I am back to making it myself again, check it out)
dash of black pepper
dash of salt
dash of oregano
dash of garlic powder (can be omitted)
2 tbs white wine vinegar ... yes, I have that BUT you could easily use any other vinegar that you have
dried parsley (optional)
*seriously, you can put whatever herbs and spices you want to make it yours!!)

All you gotta do is whisk everything together, or put in a small jar with tight lid and shake it like you mean it ... I've found it's best if you make it and then stick it in the fridge for an hour or so if possible.

I used it this time around as a little sauce to put over my deli rollups I had for dinner the other night  ... can't wait to try it on burgers next time!


Go ahead and give it a try and say yeah when you realize that this is a GREAT little dressing to have at a moment's notice!

Looking forward to sharing with some of these GREAT Parties ... go check them out!
