Milk Vinegar Salad Dressing

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"When I was stationed overseas in Sembach, Germany, all of the restaurants served this salad dressing. So simple and so tasty. It's slightly creamy and very tangy. Don't worry if it seems watery, it's supposed to be that way! If you like more of a sweeter dressing, try using evaporated milk instead."

It's too watery so for my liking. I used it on cole slaw, and it just slid off the cabbage shreds, and i didn't think it had all that much flavor. It's OK and I like the way this breaks down n...

So simple, so good. I added some garlic and Johnny's seasoned salt the second time I made it. Great recipe, thanks!

I love it! It's fast, easy and I love the taste. I've played around with it a little adding different herbs, but you don't need's great!
