This dressing was originally called Sweet and Sour Dressing, but in our house it quickly became known as Red Dressing. It was our kids absolute favourite when they were growing up and still is.
It’s actually orange, but we still call it red dressing. Our grandkids also love it and say if I sold it to supermarkets I would make a fortune. While it goes well with any salad, it goes particularly well with spinach, where it contrasts beautifully with the bitter leaves. This is the original spinach salad where I first tried this dressing.
A jar of red dressing makes a nice gift for a friend who has everything.
¼ cup sugar
a pinch of salt
1 small onion or ½ medium
½ cup cider or white wine vinegar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
½ cup tomato ketchup
Process all ingredients in food processor until smooth. Keep in the fridge in a jar with a lid. Shake well before using.
