White French Dressing with Yellow Onion
This simple yet flavorful white French dressing is made with a mayonnaise base, so pick out a good quality mayonnaise for it. Many home chefs like the flavor of Hellman’s® mayonnaise. The Dijon mustard adds a lovely touch of France to the flavor, and the white vinegar offers acidity to balance against the sweetness of the sugar.
Grated yellow onion adds more piquancy but you can use white onion or even sweet onion like Vidalia if you prefer, or if that is what you have in the pantry. This dressing will jazz up your favorite salad recipes, whether you want this white French dressing for a tossed green salad, a spinach and strawberry salad, or a garden salad recipe.
The flavor is a well-balanced mixture of sweet versus acidity, and the neutral mayonnaise blends the sweet and acidic flavors together, so the result is a mouthwatering salad dressing which only requires five ingredients and is very easy to prepare. If you usually purchase your salad dressings bottled then you will enjoy experiencing the result of this recipe, because homemade salad dressings are always way nicer than the bottled kind. They offer a fresher taste and a more vibrant flavor.

This is quite a piquant, tangy dressing. Serve this with your favorite salad and add a delicious French touch to your plate. This French dressing is made with mayonnaise, onion and mustard, along with some vinegar and sugar, so you can imagine how well-balanced the taste is. Try this over mixed leaves or toss it with cooked potatoes. If you want to have this as part of a side salad, you will find it goes especially well with pork or beef. Making this French dressing is very simple. You basically just mix the ingredients together and then let it sit overnight (if you have time) so the flavors can blend.
