What is in Spinach Salad Dressing?
You very likely have all the ingredients for this dressing on hand all of the time. The only one you might be missing is the onion … though I often have a bag in my pantry.
- olive oil
- worcestershire sauce
- white vinegar
- small onion
Let's Talk Sugar
If you are worried about how much sugar is in this dressing (3/4 cup), start with just 1/4 cup and add from there. Certainly, tastes vary, and if you love it with only 1/4 cup sugar, go for it.
How to Make Spinach Salad Dressing Recipe
The spinach salad dressing recipe calls for a grated onion, as that is how my mom always did it. I personally find that a little tedious and would recommend cutting your onion into eights and then putting it in a food processor and processing until it is very fine. It needs to be smaller than a fine dice. Then add in the remainder of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
How Long Does this Dressing Last?
Because of the fresh onion in this recipe, you will want to store it in the refrigerator and keep it for about a week.

Can you use canola oil instead of olive oil
Lisa Longley says
It will change the taste a little. Canola isn’t my favorite for salad dressings, but it’s a personal preference issue. The recipe will work with either oil.
Do you think I could replace sugar with honey
Lisa Longley says
I haven’t tried that, but if you do, I would start with only 1/4 cup of honey and add more until you get a taste you like.

I use light olive oil. Canola oil (canada oil from rape seed) is a GMO.
