Basic French Dressing

A dressing that is very simply made and that can probably be used with a greater variety of salads than any other is French dressing. For instance, it may be used with any vegetable salad, with salads containing almost any combination of lettuce and fruit, and with meat, fish, and egg salads. It is true, of course, that fruit salad dressing blends very well with salad that contain fruit, but if one is pressed for time and does not have the necessary ingredients for making any other kind, this one may nearly always be utilized.


3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons vinegar
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup oil


  • Measure the dry ingredients and place them in a bowl.
  • Measure the vinegar and oil and add them to the dry ingredients. If possible, place a piece of ice the size of a walnut in the mixing bowl. Beat well until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and the oil and vinegar form an emulsion that will remain for a short time. The ingredients will separate if the dressing is allowed to stand, but the colder they are, the more easily will the emulsion form and the longer will it remain.

NOTE: If ice cannot be used, have the ingredients as cold as possible before mixing them.
