Sweet or Sour Cream Salad Dressing

A very simple delicious dressing that requires very little time or skill to prepare. Sweet cream may also be used in the same way if desired, and this makes an excellent dressing for cabbage salad, plain cucumber salad with lettuce, or fruit salad.


1 cup sour cream (or sweet cream if desired)
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• 1/4 cup vinegar

  • Whip the cream with a rotary beater or electric mixer until it is stiff.
  • Add the sugar, salt, and vinegar, and continue beating until the mixture is well blended.
  • Cool and serve.

NOTE: If the dressing is to be used for fruit salad, lemon juice should be used in the place of vinegar and 1 talespoon of sugar should be used instead of salt.

Did You Know?
You can treat the congestion of colds by inhaling steam from steeping perspiration-inducing herbs. Take a handful of quality herbs (like peppermint, ginger, rosemary, yarrow, thyme and lemon verbena) and toss them in a pot of boiling water. Place the pot on the table and cover your head with large towel, bend over the pot, holding your head about 8 to 10 inches above. Breathe in the vapors alternately through your nose and mouth for about 15 minutes. As the steam cools, you can gradually move your face closer. Do this as often as necessary to bring relief. If you feel light-headed or experience any discomfort such as headache, discontinue treatment and consult a doctor.
