History of French Salad Dressing

Did you assume that French salad dressing originally came from France? So did I.

French dressing used to be a term for dressings made of oil and vinegar. A little company you probably never heard of…Kraft…started bottling salad dressings and their first creation was the French salad dressing that we have all come to know and love.  

So…French Salad Dressing was created right here in the good old USA.

“The perfect dressing is essential to the perfect salad, and I see no reason whatsoever for using a bottled dressing, which may have been sitting on the grocery shelf for weeks, even months – even years.”

Julia Child

Julia Child has a point. Making your own salad dressing literally takes minutes and the fresh flavor will set your salads apart. The sweetness of the honey of makes this salad dressing perfect.

I love using raw honey in my recipes. If you’ve never tried raw honey, you can find it here on Amazon. Regular honey can be used for this recipe also.

This dressing is so good, even my picky husband loves it! I’m making it for the second time in a month. There are only two of us and it’s a lot more then 6 servings for us. I keep it in an empty salad dressing bottle and we just grab it from the fridge when we make a salad. Thank you for sharing!
