Do you grow your own lettuce or like to eat a healthy salad, but do not want to use store bought dressing? There are a lot of additives in dressings and means a homemade alternative will be a better option. Fresh dressing is tasty, and a homemade french dressing is really easy to make and cheaper than store bought.
The only piece of equipment you need to make homemade french dressing is a blender. If this item is not available, then you can also use a food processor. The goal is to blend all the ingredients until the dressing is smooth. You may need to modify the recipe if it is too runny.
A great way to thicken french dressing that is runny is to use cornstarch. The only downside is you will need to heat the dressing or cornstarch before any thickening will occur. Another option is to add a little heavy cream to your homemade french dressing.
