Let's talk about them.
I made my own ranch before. The recipe I had was a little too buttermilky. And it didn't really come out any cheaper, although I had the satisfaction of knowing I made it myself.
It would be even nicer to save money over store brands.

I didn't say it *had* to be cheaper--just that it would be more satisfying if it was. :)
Eating good food is great, but eating good food and knowing you saved a bundle on it is icing on the cake.
So you have any recipes or not?

Bumped up this salad dressing thread because I found a great new dressing today, it is intended for a beef salad.

1/2 cup plain yoghurt (I used Greek style because I like it)
1 tablespoon creamed horseradish
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons cream (I used low fat milk)
2 garlic cloves, crushed (I used one- the SO is a garlic sissy)
few drops of Tabasco

Mix it all up with s good grind of black pepper

Awesome :D

PS I did not invent this, it is from a recipe book but with no actual author... just a summertime recipe collection.

Jojo, sounds like it would be great with beef!

Here are a couple of dressings I make, we enjoy them.

Bleu Cheese Dressing
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 c. mayo
1 c. sour cream
2 to 4 cloves garlic, I use a garlic press or grater rather than mincing
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
juice and zest of 1 lemon
6 oz. crumbled bleu cheese
cracked black pepper and sea salt to taste
Combine all ingredients well, pour into a container with tight lid and chill several hours. I use all the garlic, you may not like as much,, to your taste..
Love this on field green and spinach salad

Creamy Italian Dressing
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry Italian herb mix
1 clove garlic, minced, crushed or grated,, what ever works for you
Combine all ingredients well and chill.
I like this dressing for pasta salads.

So, I have no idea where I got these recipes, or how much I've adjusted the ingredients, I've been using them for a long time.

I didn't see a recipe for HONEY MUSTARD DRESSING ... or is that because, to
everyone else in the world, the recipe is obvious: mix honey with mustard ???

or is there more to it than that?

Ok here is another one. Having done a bit of travelling in Asia in the last couple of years I have come to love the clean fresh tastes I have found there. That, combined with my expanding waistline due in part to finding someone who loves my cooking I have been looking for low fat low carb dinners. Tonight I am alone as my guy is away for two weeks but that is no excuse not to eat well. I made an Asian style chicken salad comprised of poached shredded chicken, coriander, shredded cabbage, julienned carrot, capsicum, shallots AND a lovely dressing. The dressing would work with any Asian style salad.

Asian dressing

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons brown sugar (I used palm sugar for a little more authenticity)
1 fresh red chilli, de seeded and chopped

Obviously I made a lot less for just me

It's so nice. Hope you like :)
