Sweet and Sour Dressing
Every good salad needs a good salad dressing. When I throw together my favorite Strawberry Salad, I always use this Homemade Sweet and Sour dressing recipe to go with it!
When you see the ingredients all together, it looks like an odd mix: orange juice, vinegar, sugar, mustard, onion flakes…but trust me, once everything is combined into a single dressing, the flavor is AMAZING.
It’s tangy, sweet, and sour, and it blends so well into most salads. It’s a great dressing for simple salads that need a kick of flavor, and it mixes so well with fruitier salads too!
Easy Salad Dressing
Sweet and Sour; too much of one simply overpowers the other, but when the right combination is achieved, the result is divine.
This recipe is a mix of interesting flavors and the end result is a happy dance on the tongue. I LOVE this type of dressing, and I have many variations. If you’re looking for more of a poppyseed dressing, you simply need to add 1 T. poppyseeds. Easy and delicious!
