Yay! More homemade dressings! In case you missed our last posting and want to know how we really feel about bottled dressing, check it out here Roasted Pepper and Basil Salad Dressing .

You may be wondering what in the world is Sophie’s dressing. No, we didn’t get the inspiration from a movie, or a fancy French restaurant. None of that. It has a much more “sentimental”  origin.

Sophie is my very best friend and she’s the one who taught me how to make this delicious dressing. Well, this is not her exact recipe. I have made some changes here for you ( because let’s be honest, I can never follow a recipe).

Sophie has taught me a lot more than to make a salad dressing. She is an amazing friend. Smart, caring, compassionate, extremely practical and  the best advice giver ever (as a true friend should be…)

In my house, my husband and kids have always called it Sophie’s Dressing… so there you have it.  Sophie, this one’s for you!

Ingredients for Sophie’s salad dressing (makes 1/2 cup):

  • 2 tbs of eggless mayo (we used Earth Balance mindful mayo)

  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
