Best Steakhouse Salad Dressing

If there’s anything I love, it’s a cold and crisp salad crowned with the perfect dressing. I like a dressing that isn’t too creamy or too oily and one that has a perfect tang to it. Folks, this is that dressing. 

Inspired by prime rib steakhouses with a “spinning salad” (salad spun in a metal bowl on a bed of ice as dressing is poured over it), this dressing is everything you could ever want and more! Seriously, my entire family and dinner party guests kept asking for the recipe after. 

SO easy to make too! 

Here’s How I Made It!: 

To a blender, add some water… 

…apple cider vinegar… 

…applesauce… 

…seasoned salt (I used Lawry’s

…celery salt… 

…sugar… 

…paprika… 

…garlic powder… 

…Sherry wine… 

…Worcestershire sauce… 

…and a few dashes of hot sauce, if you want a slight and mild kick. 

Secure the blender lid… 

…and blend! 

Then, pour in some vegetable oil through the blender lid’s opening… 

…as you continue to blend. 

When done, transfer the dressing to a container or jar. 

Put a lid on it and pop in the fridge for a few hours until nice and chilled. 

Then, create a nice large salad of your choice. 

Pour the dressing over it… 

…toss that salad up with the dressing… 

…place that beautiful salad on the table to serve… 

…and plate some up. 

Have a lovely salad aficionado try it and look really classy while doing so. 

Watch them react as the dressing splashes within their mouth. 

And then they’ll say how much they love it and ask for the recipe!

The best dressing ever, so easily done!

Jeffrey's Tips

This will dress one large, family-style salad. If you want to double the recipe, double it and save some for later or smaller, individual servings!
