The term ‘French dressing’ means different things in different countries and the term used to mean vinaigrette (a combination of one part vinegar and three parts oil). In the United States and Canada, a French dressing is usually based on oil and vinegar. Sugar is added to sweeten it and ketchup gives it tanginess and a red color. Paprika and Worcestershire sauce are usually added to, to give the dressing its characteristic flavor. Some versions might include chopped onion too.
You can also get a creamy version which is sometimes known as country French salad dressing, and that is what this recipe will give you – a wonderfully creamy, tangy and delicious dressing which is easy to make in a blender (or a food processor). This dressing is lovely with various kinds of salad recipes, so why not try it on your favorite one?
