Homemade French dressing is easy to make and a great salad dressing you will make over and over again. You can double the recipe or cut it in half. It keeps well in the refrigerator for as long as two weeks or more. We love this homemade French dressing on taco salads and any kind of lettuce salad. You can use it as a marinade for chicken and steaks. This dressing is good on hamburgers or even added into the meat before cooking the hamburgers. Why buy this in the store when you can make it at home with no harmful additives that are bad for your health. Check out our recipes for thousand island and buttermilk ranch, too.
