When you've scooped all you can out of a mayonnaise jar, there's usually enough left in the jar to make a creamy salad dressing? All you have to do is add some yummy ingredients, to the jar and shake it!
Watch the video and see my secrets for making a delicious creamy salad dressing.
Here's the recipe you'll see in the video.
Clean-Out-the-Mayo-Jar Salad Dressing
5 cloves of garlic, smashed and peeled
Three quarters of a cup of white vinegar
Three quarters cup of olive oil
An almost empty jar of mayonnaise (you know when you’ve gotten all you can out of it)
1 teaspoon Penzeys Italian Base Dressing
1 teaspoon Lawry’s Season Salt
Put garlic and vinegar into the almost empty mayonnaise jar and shake, shake shake it until all the mayonnaise is cleaned off the insides by the garlic banging against them. Pour contents into a blender and blend.
In a small bowl, add the contents from the blender and add the olive oil and spices.
Whisk together. The longer you whisk the thicker it gets.
I know it's not red, but this next recipe is what I use instead of ketchup. (There's too much sugar in ketchup for our low-carb diet.)
Low-carb White Sauce
One quarter cup mayonnaise
One quarter cup real sour cream
One quarter cup FULL fat Greek yogurt
Mix well. You can add fresh chopped onions, jalapenos or other spices.
P.S. If you are interested in cutting back on carbohydrates, I recommend my book, The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here! The printed book is sold out, but the e-book and the audio book are still available.
