Easy French Dressing

I am known for my ranch dressing LOL I mean like typically everyone wants the recipe, AND wants to take the leftovers home.  Yes, I promise you, it's that good.  I got the basis of my recipe from my favorite cookbook. 

I was actually making ranch dressing in a large quantity so I was using the blender to mix it, and the bottom came off and dumped ALL over my cookbook. I literally ordered a new one before I cleaned up the mess.  TRUE STORY!  Thank you Amazon Prime.

I love french dressing, but it's full of chemicals, and so....  there is a recipe for the dressing in the cookbook, I decided to try it today.  I didn't have dried minced onion, so I substituted 1 tsp of onion powder.   I really love this cookbook, and I recommend it for EVERYONE!!  I am even buying it for someone I love that is getting married soon!  Again, for real, it's that good!

So, here is the recipe for French Dressing...  ENJOY!

Makes: 1 -3/4 cups
Prep Time: 5 minutes
French dressing has always been a favorite of mine. This recipe is miles better than most store-bought French dressings, and is so quick and easy to make!
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoons paprika

Combine all the ingredients in a pint jar with a tight-fitting lid. Chill for at least an hour before serving. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to two months.
