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 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 use your best judgement.

Thanks for the QUICKIE (wink!), I'll see ya next week!
