Sometimes a more highly seasoned French dressing is
desired. In such an event, use the following ingredients to prepare
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons vinegar
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion or 1 tablespoon onion juice
2 tablespoons chopped pimiento
1 large green pepper, finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
- 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.
- Add chopped onion, pimiento, green pepper and
parsley. 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.
ice cannot be used, have the ingredients as cold as possible before
