Family Recipe: Aunt Ruth’s Salad Dressing

Probably my favorite of our Family Recipes! My grandparents used to own a restaurant/‘Supper Club’ outside of Chicago during the 60s and 70s- and this recipe always gets passed around in our family cookbooks.  This dressing gets made for every holiday, special occasion, or for when we want to class up a salad.  It is perfectly tangy, sweet, and works with any kind of lettuce, really!  To me, its one of the only things that makes iceberg lettuce worth eating.

Growing up I always though of this recipe as a ‘special occasion’ dressing, as we didn’t make it too often.  Probably because safflower oil was traditionally a bit hard to find in a regular supermarket.  Nowadays its pretty easy to find (even organic!) so thankfully this dressing will be made more and more often!

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1 tsp salt

Add all the ingredients to a quart sized major jar, and shake before serving!  Thats it 🙂
