Homemade " French" Dressing (Rachael Ray)

5 mins (prep 5)
8 ingredients
0.5 servings
Ok -- since I'm always harping on you to buy that bag of salad, I thought I'd take you back to the basics with a garden salad. Now I know you're probably saying, "I don't need a recipe to tell me how to hack up a head of lettuce." You're right; you don't! But you just HAVE to try out that hacked up iceberg with a dressing you make from scratch. It's so much better than the bottled stuff and healthier too because you know EXACTLY what's in it! So today instead of a bag of salad, hack a leafy head. Trust me--tearing it apart is GREAT therapy after a hard day's work. Throw in some sliced cucumbers and radishes, and chopped scallions. Add some shredded carrots for color. Then stir up the dressing. This is VERY tasty! The only note I'll add is something Mom taught me years ago -- never ever ever cut lettuce with a metal utensil. It will make the leaves turn brown very quickly. Always chop lettuce with a plastic or plastic-like utensil or tear it up by hand.
