Homemade Salad Dressings

Oriental Dressing
1/2 c. apple cider vinegar
3/4 t. ginger powder (I use fresh grated ginger, about 1 1/2 T)
1/3 c. mayonnaise
1/8 t. cayenne pepper (more if you like it spicy)
1/4-1/3 c. sugar (I use raw organic)
2 t. sesame seeds
2 T. soy sauce or tamari

 Mix the dressing until it is smooth and mixed well.  


1/2 C Sour Cream
1/2 C  Mayonnaise
1/4 C  Ketchup
 2 tbsp. sweet pickle relish
1 tbsp. minced fresh onion
1 tbsp. finely chopped celery
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/8 tsp. pepper
Combine ingredients and stir well.  Some recipes for this are bland. This one makes a great taco salad.
Yield 1 1/2 cups.
