This slightly sweet, creamy dressing goes wonderfully with nearly any salad. It’s super easy to make and is made with simple, basic ingredients.
If you read my menu plans, you’ll notice that I often mention having homemade salad dressing. This Mexican Dressing is our favorite and the one we use the most. It is slightly sweet, a bit creamy and just has a nice, full flavor.
We love it on a variety of salads but I think it pairs especially well with salads that have eggs in them. Really though, it’s kind of like Ranch- it goes well with almost any salad!
Mexican Dressing (a homemade salad dressing)
1 medium onion
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. celery seed
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard
1/3 c. vinegar
1 c. oil
6 Tbsp. mayonnaise (opt.)*
1. Put all ingredients except mayonnaise in blender.
2. Mix 2 to 5 minutes, so oil doesn’t separate.
3. Add mayonnaise and blend until combined. Store refrigerated.
* This is obviously healthier without the mayonnaise but it is also much creamier with it. We like it both ways but do prefer it with the mayo added.
