Honey French Dressing

French dressing has always been a favorite of mine. When I was younger my mom always had "Grandma Frey" salad dressing on hand, which she made with ketchup, oil, and other stuff (no idea what it was). It was a nice red French dressing. Eventually the Ken's line of dressings was introduced, and their honey French was a delicious departure from the usual (though it was still French!). This is an homage to both Grandma Frey and Ken…whoever he is!


  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup oil (I usually use olive)
  • ¼ cup orange blossom honey
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp onion powder

Combine all ingredients in a volumetric measuring cup and blend with a stick blender. The finished dressing should be creamy and slightly thick.
