So this evening I put together some Russian dressing for someones salad.
Here’s what was in it:
- Two heaping tablespoons of mayonnaise.
- A few tablespoons of ketchup
- A tablespoon of sweet pickle relish.
- Half a tablespoon of horseradish
- 1 Quarter of an onion, chopped fine.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
Really easy to make – much better than the shit in the bottle from the supermarket. Consider no sweeteners added, no preservatives because honestly if it’s this simple to make you’re going to use all of it in one shot.
And the feline resident of approves too – she was observed to be licking the residue of the dressing out of the container that the salad had been in.
So now I have two dressings down – a Vinaigrette and Russian dressing. Ranch is sort of bland and not used in this house but if there’s a call for it, I’m going to make it.
I think we got away from making our own things because we figured we’d be lazy and just shake it out of a bottle. But the thing is, total time to make that Russian dressing and the Vinaigrette was less than 10 minutes. I’m sorry but 10 minutes doesn’t strike me as a reason to forego quality. That’s because what is in the supermarkets isn’t quality, but quantity.
