Remembering Coy's in Hot Springs and that Fabulous French Dressing!

Years ago we would frequent Coy's restaurant in Hot Springs, Arkansas which served a decanter of spicy French house dressing on every table. It was sooo delicious that we would gobble it up with the basket of saltines long before the salad or meal came along. Oh, just admit it...you did the same thing too! So sad the place burned down in 2009 however, I've been making a similar version of this dressing for many years. Whenever I serve it, everyone has to have the recipe. Now that I'm dabbling in vegan-ism, this is my vegan version of that old favorite we all loved so long ago. Just use regular mayo for the standard recipe.

How to make an absolutely delicious French (vegan) salad dressing:
1 cup Veganaise (get it at the health nut store)(use regular mayo for standard version)
1 cup tomato ketchup
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup minced onion with juice
Whisk together all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour into a decanter and serve with your favorite salad greens or plain old crispy saltines. It's really good with anything! I'm serving it for our Thanksgiving meal...
