Puerto Rican Vinaigrette

I have no idea if this recipe authentically represents the popular salad dressings of Puerto Rico (though who am I to disagree with Fannie), but to whomever can rightly claim this dressing I say: bravo!

Very tasty twist to your classic French vinaigrette and an excellent way to bedazzle a simple green salad.

Puerto Rico Dressing 
from The All New Fannie Farmer Boston Cooking School Cookbook 
Mix in a bottle or a jar with a cover
  • 1/2 cup olive or salad oil
  • 1 Tbls mild vinegar
  • 1 Tbls lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 clove garlic
  • 2 Tbls chopped olives
  • 1 Tbls tomato catsup
Cover. when ready to serve, remove the garlic and shake hard to blend. Makes 1/2 cup.

Other than substituting ketchup for the catsup (hah!) I made it according to recipe and then tossed with a green salad. It was debuted at a potluck and we watched it fly out of the bowl--a hit!

Dressing number 5 toward 24.
