Nelson's Sweet Onion, Lemon- Dill Salad Dressing

When we were in England in 1995, we had dinner with the Director of the London Mennonite Centre and his family, and he made this amazing salad dressing. No fat, great flavour, and no sugar if you use Splenda. All of the ingredients are on the "free food" list for diabetics. It would also make a delightful marinade for chicken or fish.

1/2 medium-sized sweet onion

1/2 large lemon, zested

Juice from 1/2 large lemon

1 rounded Tablespoon sugar or Splenda artificial sweetener (or to taste)

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon prepared mustard

3/4 teaspoon dill weed

pepper to taste

vinegar as needed 


Put all ingredients, except vinegar, in a blender. Blend together until onion is juiced and dressing is smooth.  Add vinegar, a little at a time if it's too thick. If you need to add vinegar, you may need to add more sweetener.   That's it!  Enjoy with your favourite tossed salad.
