Saturday Afternoon QUICKIE - German Dill Salad Dressing
What is a "QUICKIE" anyway?...hmmmmm, found this online: "Very little foreplay, quick finish. Usually 5 minutes, start to finish.." Perfect! Since I've demonstrated how blog challenged I am this year, a speedy, once a week drop-in is JUST what the doctor ordered (wink!). So clear your calendar, I'm all yours for 5 minutes every Saturday afternoon...rawr
Let's make the dressing - YUM...
Well....summer is knocking at our door....salad weather is almost here....my rear-end needs more salads, quick. Yes, I created this dressing based on an older recipe I printed years ago (don't remember where I got it!) - my Oma would have been proud, I think. Simple, fresh and delicious.
This week has been CRAZY with the end of school (remember, I homeschool...yes, I'm one of THOSE people :)), so I had to squeeze this post out quick - sorry for the lack of photos. :( Enjoy and get creative...I hope you like it!
German Dill Salad Dressing enough for 3 dinner salads or tossed to lightly coat one large salad 1 shallot - finely chopped (decent sized, but not massive!) 2 TBL. sunflower oil 1 tsp. cider vinegar (a good one...please) 1/2 tsp. dried dill 100 ml heavy cream salt & sugar - start with 1/4 tsp EACH and then increase amount to taste
Directions: Ummmmmm, whisk everything together, let set in the icebox for an hour at least. YOU-ARE-DONE!
Now, if you're not a "vinegar," fan...well, then by all means scale it back in this recipe - let's just say if my husband smells it in anything, he's already OUT! I've never stored this, as we use the entire amount each meal...so use your best judgement.
Thanks for the QUICKIE (wink!), I'll see ya next week!
How I miss the South...
After living in Georgia years ago, I quickly realized I'd never be the same! Lovely landscape, lovely people and fantastic food. This blog began as a little tribute to my many wonderful memories of one of the places I love the most. Now, it is a celebration of the past (Georgia), present (So. Calif.), and future (trips to Germany)! Don't forget to check back for recipes, fun crafts, tracking my obsession with Germany (my late mother was born in Amberg, actually), Make-Up and some twisted humor...
Stop by often!!
