Sweet & Sour Salad Dressing

Sweet and Sour Salad Dressing!  Ever tried it?


Sweet and sour anything….mmmmmmmm….

The tang of the mustard, the velvety smoothness, the texture of the celery seeds – oh my!

I just think it’s so fun and inspiring to have a few salad dressing recipes in my arsenal, because it’s so easy to fall into the rut of making the same one you know by heart over and over.

The great thing about this splendid salad dressing is that you can whip this up in no time, with ingredients you most likely always have on hand.


I use any jar I can find in my cupboard that is clean and has a lid as a vessel for my dressing.  The lid makes the shaking bit of this recipe a lot less messy than without one and storing it in the fridge requires no mental or physical exertion at the end of the night when you’re trying to tidy up the kitchen from the mess you made cooking dinner!

You will need 1/2 cup mayonnaise…


1/4 cup white sugar…


2 teaspoons vegetable oil…


1 teaspoon yellow mustard…


and 1/4 teaspoon celery seed…


whisk it together until you have this sunshiny yellow colored salad dressing!  Doesn’t that look beautiful?  Dip your finger in there and give it a try…so new and exciting! So……..sweet…..and…..so……sour….

Now, I like to use a sturdy lettuce whenever I am serving up a creamy dressing.  It holds up a lot better than some of the more delicate green leaf or bibb lettuce types.  They kind of get soppy when you hit them with anything but a vinaigrette, and even then… So, you’d probably want to find a nice hearty romaine and/or iceberg lettuce.  The rest of your salad ingredients are up to you!

Bon Appétit, Ma Chérie!
