Ranch Dressing I

Rating: 3.5 stars 51
We like this on salad, chicken wings or boiled and cubed potatoes. If using on potatoes add a little butter to the pot before adding the dressing. If white pepper isn't around, just use black.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Rating: 4.5 stars 365
This is a tangy vinaigrette--wonderful on mixed greens, tomato, onion and cucumber salads. It's also good if used sparingly over steamed veggies or stir-frys. Sometimes I use traditional balsamic vinegar. However, this will produce a slightly sweeter vinaigrette.

Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette

My mother came up with the recipe for this balsamic dressing. It's wonderful on salads, but we also use it over steamed veggies or as a marinade for chicken. Store in the refrigerator and shake each time before using.
