In this post I’ll show you how grandma’s salad dressing is prepared. For me personally, this is the world’s best dressing for a simple green leaf salad consisting of a good vinegar-oil ratio, onion, cream, sugar and corn.
Salad dressing is sure to come in a hundred if not a thousand different variations. Some like it sour, others prefer sweet. Personally, my favorite is Grandma’s salad dressing, which is a combination of both. The basis of the salad dressing is of course vinegar and oil. In the case of oil, it is particularly important in this recipe that no olive oil is used, but a more neutral vegetable oil (e.g. sunflower oil or rapeseed oil). Then add some sugar as well as fine onion cubes and cream. There is also corn as an add-on, but of course that can be varied as desired.
Now we come to the salad for: I prefer to use a nice, juicy and fresh lettuce. I like the mix of soft and crisp leaves because this mix makes the salad so balanced and varied. Compared to iceberg lettuce, where all the leaves are rather firm and crunchy, the lettuce is the best choice for grandma’s salad dressing. But it also works wonderfully with romaine lettuce or other types of salad.
Overall, this salad is a perfect accompaniment to potatoes, fish and meat. Sometimes I eat it just like that – as a main meal. If you are interested in other recipes from my grandma, then take a look at the recipe Grandma’s cucumber-salad or Grandma’s turkey schnitzel .
