Right now my kids will eat salad, but they eat it totally dry! I know that there is nothing wrong with that in fact it is probably healthier, but I have one daughter who doesn't really like her veggies. I think they might be more appealing to her if I could find a dip or dressing that she liked.

We have tried Ranch, Raspberry Vin., & Thousand Island.

What is most popular in your house? Do your kids have a favorite?

dd5 likes ranch. ds9 does not like any food to mix or touch and doesn't even like to sit next to salad dressing if he can help it --he eats it dry if anything. dd18 will only eat caesar dressing.

Our ds does not even want to be near salad! He has a great sensitivity to it (amoung other things).
Our dd loves salad especially with ranch dressing, but in a pinch, she will substitute Caesar (this is what she orders when we go out).

I love this forum!!!

I never would have thought of poppy seed or raspberry walnut! When I was a kid, it was ranch or thousand island, that's it.

Thanks ladies!

Honey Mustard -- Ken's version. We like the squeeze bottle if it's available. One of my sons will eat salad dry -- the rest need dressing to eat it.

ranch. Homemade orange poppyseed. I also loved Catalina and Thousand Island as a kid.
Taste of Home has some recipes (I assume they are online since I got them from their magazine ). The strawberry one was also good...

Quote:

Strawberry Salad Dressing

INGREDIENTS
1 package (20 ounces) frozen unsweetened strawberries, thawed
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Torn mixed salad greens and sliced onion

DIRECTIONS

In a blender or food processor, combine the first nine ingredients. Cover and process until smooth. Serve over greens and onion. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 3 cups.



From Taste of Home.

Ranch, Italian, or Creamy Italian for my little guy. I mostly keep Ranch in the house, but if we go to a restaurant, he will try their Italian.

I don't know if it is a regional specialty, but it's all DH and the kids will take on their salads.

It's kind of like Catalina, but not quite so sweet.
