French Dressing


  • clove of garlic or slice of onion
  • 1 teaspoonful salt
  • 6 tablespoonfuls salad oil
  • 1/2 teaspoonful paprika
  • 2 tablespoonfuls vinegar or lemon juice


Rub a bowl with the clove of garlic or slice of onion. Add the remainder of the ingredients, and stir until well blended. More vinegar or lemon juice may be used, if desired. Chopped parsley or mint may be added.

Some find it convenient to put the materials for French Dressing in a bottle or jar and mix the ingredients by shaking the bottle.

For Fruit Salads, the addition of 1 tablespoonful of sugar and 1 teaspoonful of lemon juice to the French Dressing recipe above makes a pleasing flavor. Celery salt is thought by some to improve the flavor. From a quarter to a half teaspoonful may be added.
