Homemade, Tangy French Dressing
Ready for Your New Favorite Dressing?
If you're anything like me, homemade is always the best way to go when it comes to delicious recipes—and that includes dressings and dips. This tangy, homemade French dressing is better than any store-bought version. It's also cheaper and healthier, and most of the ingredients can be found right in your pantry. I researched over a dozen different recipes and used ingredients that worked for me.

- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 to 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 2-3 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Instructions for French Dressing
- Place olive oil, ketchup, white sugar, chopped onion, white vinegar, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, celery seed, onion powder, paprika, chili powder, garlic salt or fresh garlic clove, salt and pepper in mixing bowl.
- Whisk ingredients until well blended. Transfer to jar or bottle and refrigerate until needed. Remember to shake well before serving. I use the plastic squeeze condiment bottles because I find them perfect for storing my homemade dressings and dips.
