Dad’s Goop Salad Dressing recipe was adapted and shared with me by Karen Calanchini of Redding, CA.  Karen says, “When I did the cookbook for the Redding Police Department, this Dad’s Goop Salad Dressing recipe was included.  It is from a good friend of mine and she says it is close to 60 years old and that her dad used to make it.  I have created this low-fat version that I use all the time.  It is so very good!”

  5. DO NOT OVERDRESS YOUR SALADS - Too much salad dressing will weight down the salad ingredients and mask their flavors. T he dressing's role is to highlight not to overpower the salad ingredients.  A general rule is 1/4 cup of dressing for 6 cups of greens.  As soon as your salad is mixed, taste a leaf to see if there is sufficient dressing. I f not, drizzle some more over the salad, a tablespoon at a time; toss and taste again.

Recipe Notes

* Other sugar substitutes to use are Xylitol and Truvia.
