My grocery store stopped carrying my favorite brand of french salad dressing so I decided to try making my own. So glad I did because this recipe tastes even better! I used low fat Duke's mayo in it to save on a few calories (and Duke's doesn't have sugar in it and has better flavor than that "other" brand). I will be making this again, thank you!

Among other things, I do not eat any animal/animal byproduct or sugar. I have yet to find a French dressing with appropriate ingredients for me. I needed French dressing as an ingredient in another recipe so hunted for how to make it myself. I used this recipe but changed a few things. I used a natural organic ketchup made with agave syrup, not sugar. I used non dairy mayonnaise. And I used 1 tsp. of agave syrup instead of sugar. I did not add the 1/4 tsp. salt. This dressing was fabulous and worked perfectly in my bean salad recipe. It would be great on salads too.
Eggplants are a good source of potassium. If you find them to be too bitter, try buying smaller ones and sprinkle the flesh with salt and let it drain before cooking. This is a common reason why people shy away from eggplant but it is so easily remedied!
