At lunchtime in Sarasota, as a teenager, I had a more than healthy appetite.  I often ate at the drugstore lunch counter, but sometimes I went up the street to a somewhat plain mom-and-pop restaurant, that served plain food at a cheap price.  Both places served a "salad" which consisted of a large wedge of iceberg lettuce with a French dressing that was great!   Have you recently looked at the ingredients on a bottle of salad dressing?  I can't even pronounce the stuff, and it certainly doesn't make for a truly healthy salad.  No wonder people eat less salads nowadays!  Here's a recipe for French dressing that is cheap, healthy, and out of this world delicious.  It will keep for some time in the refrigerator.

Homemade French Salad Dressing

1 2/3 C. virgin olive oil or coconut oil
1 C. of a good quality ketchup
3/4 C. sugar (or xylitol)
1/2 C. apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. lemon or lime juice
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 small onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 small peeled garlic clove (optional)
1/2 tsp salt (optional)

Place all ingredients in a blender and process until the mixture is entirely smooth.  Store in an appropriate bottle in the refrigerator.  Great with any kind of vegetable salad!
