This is one of those recipes that you're probably going to think "That's strange! Really, that's good?" Honestly, that's what I thought when I was first told about this salad dressing. But, I promise, this is all you need to make super tasty and amazingly healthy Oma's Salad Dressing:
|Oma's Salad Dressing ingredients - tomato juice, cider vinegar, salt, pepper, & sugar|
Here's all you do. Measure out your ingredients into a small bowl.
Whisk them together with a fork. That's it. You're done.
Pour the dressing over your salad. There will be a lot of liquid in the bottom of the salad bowl - like this:
But that's okay, it's supposed to be that way. When individual servings are scooped out, make sure to get some of the juice from the bottom of the bowl for each one. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how flavorful this is!
Oma's Super Healthy Salad Dressing

3/4 c. tomato juice
2 T. cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk together with a fork. Pour over tossed salad.
A couple of notes:
- I buy the little cans of tomato juice and keep them on-hand in the pantry. That way, I have the ingredients I need for this pretty much all the time - and I don't end up wasting a bunch of tomato juice from the huge cans.
- The black pepper controls the spiciness of the dressing. The full 1/2 tsp. makes it quite spicy.
- You can add extra cider vinegar, too taste.
