A good ol' salad dressing

Since we were married, we have made and enjoyed this salad dressing every once in a while.  My mother-in-law said it was a Gas Company recipe.  It's a French dressing made with Campbell's Tomato Soup.

Anna's French Dressing

1 can tomato soup
1 teasp. salt
1 teasp. dry mustard
3/4 cup corn oil  ( I use cannola)
3/4 cup dark vinegar  (I use cider)
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teasp. paprika
1 teasp. worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons onion soup mix or onion flakes

Mix in quart jar and refrigerate.  Shake before using.


  1. This sounds like a dressing I'd like! Thank you.

  2. I have a recipe from a great aunt... we are talking the 1930's.
    Very much the same with addition of horseradish, Tabasco, garlic and sliced fresh onion in place of onion soup mix or onion flakes. Only two of us so I only make a cup at a time and use it on so many things, and of course salad. Something about the dressing with the very thin slices of onion that make a bowl of lettuce into a salad. Nice to see others are enjoying it's sweet and tang also.
