Indiana Farmhouse Dressing

A hundred year old recipe

This simple recipe has been used for salads, cucumbers and cole slaw for over a hundred years in Indiana, and can be found in many handwritten family cookbooks.

It has the advantage of being non-fat if you don’t add the olive oil, but still low-fat if it is added.

Indiana Farmhouse Dressing

2 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs very hot water
2 Tbs apple cider vinegar
¼ tsp celery seed
¼ tsp salt
3 grinds of fresh pepper
2 tsp olive oil (optional)

Add the hot water to the sugar and stir to dissolve. Use a wire whip or fork to whisk in the remaining ingredients.

For coleslaw, pour over 4 cups of shredded cabbage and 2 Tbs of shredded carrot, apple, or green pepper.
