2 kinds of colorful dressing

I usually like to eat salad simply with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.  I change what vinegar I use depending on what I am serving as a main dish, or I might put pressed garlic, though.  But I sometimes make these dressing because they are tasty and look colorful on a table.

*Red Dressing*
1/4 Red Onion
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tea spoon dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste

< 1 > Chop the onion.
< 2 > Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend.

*Green Dressing*
1/2 Avocado
1 cup parsley leaves
2 table spoon olive oil
Juice form 1 lemon
2 table spoon white balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

< 1 > Chop avocado to small pieces.
< 2 > Chop parsley randomly. 
< 3 > Put everything in the food processor and blend.

I usually make them separately but they look pretty good together....  I used jars to serve at the table so everyone can serve themselves and if there is leftover, I just put the lid back on and keep it in the refrigerator for next day's lunch.


  1. I want to try the avocdo one in a sandwich with chicken. I think it would taste Incredible.
