It Makes the Salad

One day when KLB was over and joining us for dinner we were going to have salad so I whipped (blended) up some salad dressings. In addition to the Creamy Italian Dressing I made and sent home with KLB, I also made Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing (recipe below), and ranch dressing from this Ranch Dressing Mix. After making all those different dressings Moo was not satisfied with any of them so I made the Poppy Seed Dressing I I made a couple weeks ago. I modified the preparation of the dressing from the last time I made it. Previously I had the directions stating you could shake to combine; however, I found that it would separate after sitting. This time I used the blender like I did for the Creamy Italian Dressing.

The consistency of the blue cheese dressing was PERFECT. I loved everything about it. The Blue Cheese Dressing I I made last time didn't quite hit the spot. I have to say again. . . this was perfect. While I like the ranch dressing mix the dressing ends up a little runny. Each time I make it I try to make it thicker. . . .I just don't make it often enough to make much progress. Once I get it figured out I will let you know.
