Michele's Basic Salad Dressing

My mom asked for this recipe last week and I actually forgot until I made it again last night. Sorry, Mom!

Here you go.

3 Tbsp. red onion
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. celery seeds
1 cup canola oil

Put the red onion in a food processor and pulse until minced. Add remaining ingredients and pulse for 2-3 minutes until well mixed.

You can vary this recipe in many ways. I use different vinegars and oils and spices depending on my mood. The mustard and onion are the key ingredients because they keep the dressing emulsified.
