    I have a new urge. To make salad dressings from scratch at home instead of buying the bottle.

    Anyone have any recipes? Don't care which kind.

    I don't use a recipe, but I make a basic oil (extra virgin olive) and vinegar (usually cider vinegar) dressing with whatever seasonings are on hand (maybe Italian, some garlic powder), a little salt and pepper. Then I add some grainy mustard to make an emulsion. I prefer this over bottled dressings.

    I reduce blueberrys or raspberrys down into a syrup and add just a hint of sugar to take off the rawness and use it on fresh salad greens, I also take and mash a garlic clove with a bit of salt and add some olive oil

    Here's a Rachael Ray one that I like. When I make the salad I add other fruits too besides strawberries. Sometimes add Italian seasoning too.

    I make my version of Thousand Island by mixing Mayonnaise, ketchup and relish.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Raspberry Vinaigrette
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Equal parts
    * vinegar (any type, I usually use regular, white)
    * salad oil (any type, I usually use canola oil)
    * raspberry jam (made with sugar or sugar free)

    Shake together well. (I usually mix with immersion blender

    Variations
    ~~~~~~
    * look for other types of jams/jellies/marmalades
    * add spices that match the jam. Eg. ginger with marmalade, etc.
    * I've used homemade cranberry sauce, in place of the jam
    * try maple syrup in place of the raspberry jam; balsamic vinegar is a nice combo with the maple syrup
