Salads, Dressings, Dips, and Sauces
This recipe used Hot Sweet Mustard, the recipe for that is also in this section. This sauce is not hot when cooked on meat. We use a little more onion powder that this recipe shows, but we like onion.
Combine and bring to a boil:
- 2 Tbsp. dry onion
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 dashes tobasco sauce
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup flour
Pour over partially roasted and drained beef ribs. Bake at 350ºF for 1 1/2 hours.
This dressing is very good for lettuce or potato salad.
Blend until smooth:
- 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
Add and blend well:
- 1 cup Weight Watchers mayonnaise
Stir in the following:
- 2 Tbsp. dry parsley flakes
- 2 Tbsp. dry onion
- 2 tsp. dill weed
- 2 tsp. seasoned salt
Use for dipping fresh vegetables.

This is the recipe Mom used for potato salad. As I sit here typing this recipe, I see a pan on a bread board on the kitchen windowsill, I can feel the gentle breeze, see the steam coming out of the pan, and recognize the somewhat pungent smell of the mustard dressing - the making of potato salad. Yum!
Mix together and refrigerate:
- 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/8 tsp. ginger
Dip apples and strawberries.
I got this recipe from a friend at college. Whenever we would invite her over she would bring the ingredients for this snack salad. She looked really timid, but we would often sneak pieces of the Snicker bar before they were added. Once I caught her trying to fit half of one into her mouth.
I think Bev introduced us to this recipe. It is a favorite to use for picnics and potlucks.

This salad is quite popular around here. I like the taste a lot, but don't know how you can reduce the amount of Miracle Whip. (It tastes great, but seems like a lot of dressing.)
