3 Frugal Homemade Salad Dressing Recipes

Every year when the weather starts to get warmer, we like to plant a backyard garden. We enjoy planting a variety of lettuces, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, radishes, green peppers, tomatoes and onions. We look forward to harvesting time, just so we can create some wonderful summer salads.

To go along with our salads, we prefer to make our own homemade salad dressings. The following recipes are really easy to prepare and will keep in the refrigerator for up to 7 days in an airtight container.

Classic Blue Cheese

2 cups mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup vinegar
4 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
4 ounces Blue cheese, crumbled

In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients until well blended. Stir in the crumbled Blue cheese. Pour mixture into a glass jar or pourable plastic container. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

Creamy Buttermilk

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients together until well blended. Pour into a glass jar or pourable plastic container. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

Classic Country French

1/4 cup water

1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon mustard
1/2 clove garlic, minced
