Grandma Van's Salad Dressing

My husband's maternal Grandma, affectionately known as Grandma Van to her grandkids, was known for several recipes.  One was her famous gingersnaps, one was her Bohemian rye sugar cookies, and another was her salad dressing.  Everyone who has ever tried this dressing loves it.  No kidding.  It is that good.  And even though Grandma Van is no longer with us here on Earth to spend the holidays with, Thanksgiving and Christmas just wouldn't be the same without some of her salad dressing on the table.

Grandma Van's Salad Dressing

1 slice onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 cup sugar
½ cup white vinegar
1 cup vegetable oil

Put all ingredients except the vegetable oil in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add 1 cup vegetable oil and blend again until mixed evenly. Pour into salad dressing container.  Store in refrigerator.

Yield: 1 pint

Notes:  This is a sweeter salad dressing, but oh so yummy.  It is really easy to cut the recipe in half if you don't need 2 cups of dressing. 

Only 6 more recipes and 11 more days until Christmas!
