French Dressing

Nana’s Recipe box

French Dressing from Shawn Stratmann on Vimeo.

This was the first recipe I made from my Nana’s recipe box. There is something nostalgic about French Dressing for me…it is the dressing I probably ate most as a child (that and Good Seasonings Italian).

When I first tried this recipe in the 90’s, I had no idea what the outcome would be because the recipe card called it “House Dressing”. With great anticipation I followed the recipe to a tee…anxious to try the dressing that would accompany me to a family dinner. When I finished making it, I remember laughing out loud thinking…FRENCH DRESSING????? I have to tell you though…it is OUTSTANDING and so easy to make. Enjoy!


1/2 C Oil
1/4 C Vinegar (I use rice wine vinegar)
1/2 C Catsup
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 C Chopped onion
1 Tsp Lemon Juice
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Paprika

Mix all together in a blender until smooth.


Down home friends and what they say...

Yup - we New Englanders tend to call anything that has more than three ingredients “French” or “exotic” or “sinful.” It’s the Puritan in us!

Another yummy recipe - thank you Shawn!
