I have only ever made a vinaigrette before, but the cook book my brother gave me for Christmas has 6 pages of recipes for homemade salad dressing. Some of them sound really good. Have you ever made your own salad dressing? What kind was it? How did it turn out?

I love honey mustard on my chicken, but I have never had it on my salad before. My kids both turn their noses up at honey mustard. They love honey, but hate mustard.

I wish I could remember. I used to get a packet from the health food store years ago. You added some oil and afew things and it was delicious. I love home made anything. So much better for us!

I have made it from packets a few times before. It turned out pretty good.

Ranch dressing. Oh my gosh...it is the best of the best! Sadly, I don't have the recepie, but my mother does. It was made with buttermilk, vinegar, parsley, garlic, pepper and I think that's it...maybe there was mayo. Anywho, it was simpley the best. Now, my mother also makes Italian, but that always made me gag...too tart. *Pleiades

That sounds YUMMY! I love ranch dressing, but I have never tried making it unless you count the packets of powder at the store. Let me know if you ever snag that recipe from your mom.

Salad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yaah....... Whenever you eat food it is just cooked at maximum temperature and the what you call the all vitamins it have are cooked and are become non useful what ever remaining only you are eating. Remember whenever you eat green vegetables (Some areas not getting Green vegetable and they are using tinned vegetables) you must eat them without cooking. When you eat the uncooked vegetables you will find some of the vegetables are not having that much good taste to eat, and there comes salad, different peoples are of different mind and different tastes so they started making salad in a different methods.Salad is not a cooked dish of vegetables but salad is a preparation of uncooked vegetables as well as fresh fruits. one can make salad of Onion, Cucumber, Carrot, Beetroot,Lemon, Green Onion, Coriander leaves etc. If want to make a salad just take any or one of the vegetable you like or ready to make cut in such a way some one like it when see in a dish. So if you take a only carrot and you want to prepare a carrot salad, first clean it nicely, remove skin (you can take as it is skin is also good for health)cut in a round shape or cut in a long oval shape or any shape you wish and then arrange it in a dish pour some salt, black pepper over it you can garnish it with coriander leaves, put small cut pieces of lime or put some lime over the salad and give on table but remember always salad you can prepare early but not to put any ingredients as early just pour before serving over the salad
