About this recipe: A tasty red French dressing that has been a family favorite for years. For variations I have used flavored vinegars, red wine, and balsamic vinegars. The red wine is very good. Enjoy.
I needed 1 cup of French dressing for another recipe and didn't have any in the fridge. I found this, tried it, and LOVED it. I used it in my recipe and on my salad for lunch today. I used cider vinegar and whirled it in the blender until completely smooth....I was really happy with its thick consistency. It took about 5 minutes from start to finish and is better than ANY bottled version. - 08 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Ok, let me just say before I start, I find it irritating when people don't follow the recipe exactly and then rate that recipe based on the results of their tampered with creation. On that note I followed this recipe to the "T" and it was o.k., a little to ketchup-y for me. My son liked it. . . as a stand in for ketchup on the side of his steak, he is four:-) - 07 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is awesome!! I use homemade red wine in place of the red-wine vinegar, and you're right it is fantastic that way. Thanks for sharing. I will make this often. - 11 Aug 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
