Violet’s Salad Dressing

You'll never find a store-bought salad dressing in Ms. Lou's kitchen. This deliciously tangy dressing was named after Francis Violet Lodato, who was somewhat of the family mentor in the kitchen.


 1 large egg
 2 egg yolks
 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil (can substitute for olive oil)
 1 cup green onions
 1/2 cup canned tomato sauce
 1 tbs white vinegar
 2 tbs sugar
 1 tsp white pepper
 1 tsp minced garlic
 1 tsp hot sauce
 1/4 tsp red pepper
 1/2 tsp salt



In a food processor, blend the egg and egg yolks for 2 minutes.


Leave the machine running and gradually add the oil in a thin stream.


Then add the remaining ingredients and blend until thoroughly mixed.


Refrigerate until ready to use. Makes about 3 cups.
