Hello Lovelies! What a beautiful day in the Mississippi river valley. The perfect day for a picnic which is exactly how we spent it. My grandparents came down to celebrate my birthday with me a couple days early and broughtΒ  the most gorgeous fresh strawberry (of course!) birthday cake. mmmmm! We cooked hot dogs, ate our body weight in potato salad, and admired my herb garden and roses. But, mostly, we were just lazy. That’s how summer is suppose to be, right? I am sooooo looking forward to all of the things we have planned for this delicious season…and one of them is the plan to just relax.

So I’m just now getting around to posting a bloggy entry. I hope you all didn’t miss me too much. πŸ˜‰

I am working on a post that showcases all of my homemade salad dressings which I will be publishing soon. That way you’ll be able to find all of these yummy concoctions in one place. Thank you all SO much for your enthusiasm about the dressings. I think everyone is eager to create healthier salad toppings for their families. Why bother with the rabbit food if you’re going to just top it with transfats, weird ingredients that you can’ t pronounce, fake flavors and sweeteners, and artificial coloring? Well, that’s how I see it anyway.

Here’s a yummy, tangy, tomatoey (is that a word?) salad dressing that you can whip up with easy to find ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Although the Campbell’s soup label is a classic… and that logo is awesome (I have a penchant for simple, elegant logos…like Lucky Strike Cigarettes…even though I have never smoked a cigarette in my life…that is a COOL logo…or the U.S. mail service. Also cool. Guinness…Coca Cola…Chanel… But I digress…)

What I’m really trying to say, is that I mostly used a Campbell’s soup label for this photo because I like how it looks. Campbell’s soup, although very nostalgic, is not health food. Almost every can has way too much MSG and salt to be healthy (sorry Campbell’s.) So, if you want this to be truly healthy, use Amy’s or Muir Glenn, or your favorite healthy selection.

Am I talking too much? πŸ™‚ Here’s the recipe.

1 can condensed tomato soup

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon celery seed

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon garlic powder

a dash or two of Tabasco sauce

Combine all in blender. Will keep in the fridge for 10 days.

    Thank you for the dressing recipe. I love home made dressings, they have fresh flavor you can’t buy in a jar. I will save this one & try it. I enjoyed your thoughts on summer & salad dressings, too.
    I’m glad your grandparents were able to help you celebrate your birthday, that makes it special.
    Enjoy your summer.

    My mom back in the 50’s made a tomato soup dressing but it had onion in it that was grated like hash browns or cheese. It gave it a unique still looking for that recipe.

      Hi Mary! I think I can help you! My grandma made a French dressing with grated onion, and years later while looking for her recipe I came across this one from Stillwater’s Lowell Inn. It’s almost exactly the same as my grandma’s! Please let me know if it’s what you were thinking of! XO ~M πŸ™‚
