Dressing for Potato Salad

This amount makes a generous I thought this was very easy and quite tasty I did find it worked better by putting the dressing on just before you serve it because it gets quite thick the longer it is in the fridge, I used di A good base recipe. I did delete the ketchup and added celery seed,, a pinch of dill and a little sugar. The results were great!! The dressing was yummy. It reminded me of something my mom used to throw together when we were out of salad dressing.

The potato sald tasted fine right after mixing it all together but the nex I used thick, strained yogurt instead of sour cream It tasted so good I was eating it with a spoon! Could be good as a macaroni salad base too. Very quick and easy. Easy, delicious, the only potato salad that I have ever liked. Switched celery for onion. All the guys loved it. Everyone that tastes it want a copy of the recipe.

The oil carries the flavors of the other ingredients, and makes their flavors more pronounced ie fat is flavor. Oils, and oil emulsions like mayonnaise, and dairy fat like sour cream are the most common fats used.

From a nutritional standpoint, fat is important to help us absorb and digest nutrients in our salads and they also provide satiety. I rarely make salad dressing without some form of allium in in. I try to keep things simple and not use more than one. And I like to use a light hand with whichever one I am using. In the case of this cider vinegar dressing I used shallot. But some other examples of allium in dressing are garlic and granulated garlic and roasted garlic , onion and chive.

This is not absolutely necessary, but in small amounts allium adds so much to a dressing. An emulsifier is an ingredient that makes oil and water hold together. These are useful in salad dressings because they keep the ingredients in suspension. The two most common emulsifiers in salad dressings are mustard and egg yolk. I also am a fan of using my blender or mini prep to blend my dressings, which can make the temporary emulsions hold longer. See more below about blending techniques.

Commercial dressings use soy lecithin which is a soy derived emulsifier. These are ingredients that are added to dressings like roasted tomatoes, cheese, peanut butter, fruit, pesto and fresh herbs that make them flavorful and unique. Some optional ingredients like Greek Yogurt are all about making the dressing creamy and have nice thick texture and mouth-feel. Others like chopped herbs add a big punch of flavor. Others like tahini do both.

I find that I really like to add a little bit of something sweet to a lot of my dressings. Again this in part has to do with the ratio of fat. Honey, maple syrup and agave are great ways to add a balancing sweet note because they are already liquid. Naturally sweet fruits like raspberries can also do this very well. If you use soy sauce, miso, capers, fish sauce or another salty ingredient you can get away without adding more salt or very little.

This is especially important in lower fat dressings that do not have bulking ingredients added. I am a huge pepper lover. I usually add pepper to my dressings and to the salad too at the table. Consider the ingredients in your salad before you season. If you have Parmesan or feta in the salad, season the dressing lightly, then taste the salad once it is tossed and add more salt if the salad need it.

There are lots of ways to mix the ingredients together. A whisk in a bowl and a jar are very simple ways of creating an emulsion. I favor using a blender or mini prep for dressing because it chops the optional ingredients more finely and it makes their flavor more pronounced.

Machine blended dressings stay in emulsion longer in the fridge too which is great if you like to have the dressing on hand for several salads. In case you missed it, here is a little tutorial on stocking your pantry with vinegars.
