Homemade Sweet Onion Salad Dressing


One of my favorite homemade salad dressings is my Mother in Law’s Homemade Sweet Onion Salad Dressing. Ya know those dressings that make you want to eat more salad? This is it! It’s got quite a strong onion taste so if you’re not as keen on onions, just use a little less than I did in the recipe.

Homemade Sweet Onion Salad Dressing


  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium onion, quartered
  • 1/4 cup of white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of Organic ketchup


  1. Add the ingredients to a blender and blend on high until fully mixed.
  2. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a month.

Salads to Use With.

This ain’t the kind of thing you want to be splashing on your nice strawberry fields salad or anything else fruity but it worked great on my green salad and encouraged me to gobble down that kale.

Salad Dressing Notes

I poured mine into a mason jar where it thickened after a few hours. I’ll keep it in there for a month.

I used all natural ingredients I had on hand making sure that even my condiments only have natural or organic ingredients but I did wonder if this would taste good with honey too instead of brown sugar.
