Do you make your own salad dressing or buy bottled? Favorite?

I just saw on the Food Network a new ingredient for Cherry Vinegar which probably could be used in a homemade salad dressing and would taste good on a salad. I usually eat Honey French Dressing from a bottle.

  • I'm just an oil and vinegar kinda peep. Best bottled Italian has to Kraft Tuscan House... fabulous. I actually make my own thousand island and honey mustard. If you ever find that you would love a recipe for a brand name product or even a restaurant favorite, simply google the name followed by recipe clone.  I have reproduced some awesome stuff in my kitchen....

  • My favorite is my grandmother's Italian dressing. She makes it from a packet I think but adds her own stuff with it and it's yummy! Second best is Olive Garden's dressing lol. I love Italian/Vinegarettes.

  • I rarely used salad dressing - I use fruit instead. When I do though it is Ranch from Hidden Valley!

  • I buy Dorothy Lynch & ranch for everyday basic salads, and I make my own when I make a certain kind of salad (my grandma's "recipe").
