Cooking with Oil...Rotisserie Salad Dressing

Both Sue and I like to make our salad dressings. For one thing, you can make a small amount and know what is in it. and not have a lot of bottles of dressing open at once. 
 This recipe is from one of the old Southern Living cookbooks we have featured in our cookbook reviews. Anything from these books has always worked for me and I count them among my favorite cookbooks. It is named for the restaurant it was served at.
 It is halfway between a French and a Thousand Island type of dressing. I did not finely grate the onion, just minced it very fine. Seemed to work just fine. If you want a large amount just double the recipe and store in refrigerator.
Rotisserie Salad Dressing
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
½ cup mayonnaise or use Sue’s salad dressing
2 tablespoons chili sauce
2 tablespoons catsup
½ teaspoon prepared mustard
¼ cup salad oil
½ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
½ teaspoon black pepper
Dash Tabasco sauce
½ onion finely grated or finely minced
1 tablespoon water
 Put all ingredients in bowl, and using a whip combine till well mixed (or shake in pint jar); then keep refrigerated.

Yield 1 ¼ cups


  1. Years ago my mother-in-law gave me some Southern Living cookbooks that I have since passed down to my daughter. This salad dressing sounds like a keeper. I'll be trying it!

    1. Since I got these cookbooks years ago they might be the same ones. The dressing is very good and I hope you try it and enjoy it.

  2. I think this is the same dressing I make that they call Come Back Sauce. It's delicious.

    1. I think so also, the cookbook calls it Rotisserie but I have seen the recipe for Come Back Sauce and do believe it is the same recipe, just a different name.
