There are plenty of salad dressings available in the supermarket, but nothing tastes quite the same as homemade, fresh dressing. Homemade dressing can be made in any quantity so you won't be stuck with a whole bottle of dressing you get tired of and never finish.
Mix 1 part vinegar (clear, red wine, or garlic type) with 4 parts oil (vegetable, peanut, or safflower) and 1/2 part water. Add pepper, tarragon basil, oregano - whatever spices you like best. Mix well before serving.
Choose your favorite mustard (Dijon mustard works well) and mix with sour cream.
This can be used straight as a potato chip dip or as a salad dressing if you add some oil and vinegar. Add dried onion to 8 oz. of sour cream. Mix thoroughly and serve chilled.
Guacamole can be used as a dip, salad dressing, or topping for hamburgers and nachos. Chop and mix a ripe avocado. Add about 5 drops of lemon juice to keep the avocado mixture from turning brown. Add sour cream and spices.
