Cooking salad dressing "Old French":

Step 1: prepare all the components of the salad dressing.

To begin with, we will prepare all the ingredients so that we don’t get distracted by small details in the process of preparing Old French Sauce. So, we clean the onion from the husk and rinse under running water. This ingredient can not be wiped with a paper towel, since water prevents the onion juice from getting into our eyes, and we won’t “cry”! Using a medium grater, rub the onion component directly into a small plate. There is another way to chop onion - put half the onion on a chopping board and chop it with a knife. We try to chop the ingredient as much as possible into almost fine chips. The next component will be parsley. We rinse it under running water and now we wipe it with a kitchen paper towel so that the excess liquid does not get into the salad dressing. Put the parsley on a chopping board and chop finely with a knife. Fresh greens - this is a component of the sauce, which is never much. Therefore, add it to taste. Shredded ingredient is transferred to a small plate. That's all, all the components of the sauce are ready, so we can safely proceed to the main process.

Step 2: prepare a salad dressing "Old French".

Pour into a medium-sized bowl, measuring the right amount with a tablespoon, white wine vinegar and sprinkle with salt. Then add the chopped onion and half a teaspoon of spices such as paprika and dried celery. Thanks to these seasonings, your dish will give an unusual aroma and rich taste. For example, paprika, or as the Hungarians call it “red gold”, has a sweet-spicy aroma, and it can be sweet and fiery-hot depending on the color saturation of the spice. But the better the quality of this seasoning, the more harmonious is its taste in the dishes. As for dried celery, it has a strong rich aroma and a slightly bitter spicy taste. And now beat our components with a hand whisk. In this recipe, we don’t need a mixer, since it is not for nothing that this dressing is called "Old French". We will adhere, as in the old fashioned way, to all the details! We work with the appliance until all the ingredients are mixed with us and no lumps of spices are visible on the walls of the container. After that, we begin to pour vegetable oil in a small stream. To do this, you can use the cup and pour into it, measuring with a tablespoon, the required amount of ingredient. Who has a trained eye, you can add oil directly from the container in which it is stored. Attention: whisk in parallel with a whisk. When we have a homogeneous mass, we proceed to the next step. Add chopped parsley to a bowl with dressing ingredients. And once again, mix everything well with a whisk.

Step 3: serve the Old French Salad Dressing.

The convenience of this gas station is that it does not need to be insisted in the refrigerator and wait a certain time. Therefore, we pour the Old French sauce from a bowl into a saucepan or bowl and serve it to the table so that everyone can independently fill the salad to taste. And if you know the preferences of your friends and relatives, then you can independently fill the dish with Salad dressing and surprise guests with its new taste and aroma. Let them guess that you added to the salad, that it became so unusually tasty! As for salads, the Old French salad dressing can be added primarily to vegetable dishes with pieces of meat and baked bread. Good appetite!

Recipe Tips:

- - What I like about cooking sauces is that there is a place for your imagination. For example, the taste will not be spoiled in this salad dressing if chopped garlic is used instead of onion, and freshly squeezed lemon juice is perfect instead of vinegar.

- - In addition to all, Old French Salad dressing can also be used to dress fruit salads, as it gives a sweet, tangy flavor. Only instead of parsley, it will be appropriate to add finely chopped mint, and, of course, cross out the onions or garlic from the components.

- - If you have a blender at hand and you are sensitive to an ingredient such as onions, as an exception, this component of the sauce can also be grinded using this appliance. Just be sure to use 2-3 modes so as not to turn the onion into gruel.

- - If you have prepared a lot of Salad dressing, in no case do not pour it. It is perfectly stored in the refrigerator. Just pour it into a glass jar and close it tightly with a lid so that the sauce does not absorb the smells of other products in the refrigerator. Refueling will still be fresh for several days.
