Summer is always a great time for entertaining friends and family, pool parties and cookouts. Many people like to eat ‘lighter’ with the heat and that means more salads and veggies.

I don’t know about you but I tend to get bored with the common types of salad dressings (Italian, French, etc.)

Have you ever been to a restaurant and ordered salad with “house” dressings that have left your palette craving more? I have. Unfortunately, you never leave with the recipe! This is one of those dressings. Light and tangy, it is unique and the perfect addition to any salad (and great with grilled chicken). Enjoy!


In a bowl (or processor) combine:
1 small white or yellow onion finely grated or chopped
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard (be sure the mustard is not ‘clumpy’ when adding to the liquid or you’ll have a hard time getting it to separate)
salt to taste or no salt (I don’t use salt)

Mix well!

Whisk in 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
