Dorothy Lynch® Style Salad Dressing

Positively Angel 2

"This is my husband's favorite dressing, and it is the best dressing to use in taco salad. The original dressing was made in St. Paul, Nebraska and is sold in the midwest but is becoming more expensive. This recipe is very similar to the store version and uses products I regularly have in my pantry. We love it."

We really liked this recipe and it deserves a five star rating. I used all of the ingredients listed in the recipe (yes, I used the cornstarch). I used Campbell's condensed tomato soup. Placed everything inside my food processor, pulsed a couple of times, poured it into a jar and refrigerated it. I served it over taco salads! I've never tasted the original Dorthy Lynch (R) Style Salad dressing - but this recipe is perfect as written! Thanks Angel for sharing!


What a great dressing! I found it when I was looking at the Chicken Fiesta Salad reviews, and another reviewer mentioned this dressing. I am not a tomato soup fan AT ALL, so I was leary. I tasted it right after I made it, and still wasn't sure, but after letting it sit and blend the flavors, I was so happy!! I just finished making it for the second time, this time, I put everything in my Magic Bullet. Used only 1/2-3/4 cup oil, and about 1/2 the sugar. We actually use it on all salads for a different flavor. So good! Thanks!!

I had to make a quick switch out to make what I had on hand work--I did not have celery seed, what I used instead was celery salt which meant I omitted the additional salt. When it came to adding in the oil, I did what Sherri did and started with a half cup of oil and then added it by tablespoon until it got to the consistancy I was looking for. I used this as a dressing for Mexicali Pasta Salad. Both my husband and I thought it was a little too sweet, I'd make this again but I would cut back on the sugar by at least half. I was thinking that this would also make an excellent dressing for taco salad.
