    Creamy Salad Dressing

    I mix a 50/50 blend of lemon juice and olive oil to go on my salads, but my new dentist talked about how acidic foods and drinks are bad for the teeth. He specifically mentioned lemons.

    So I am thinking of switching to a creamy dressing. Do you have one you like, store bought or homemade, preferably without sugar?

    Creamy salad dressings are often made with mayo, yogurt and/or buttermilk, all of which are acidic.

    I like Green Goddess.

    I also make a bacon dressing with ketchup, mayo, and bacon blended together.

    Looks like I need a blender, on my wish list. Maybe I need to kick myself into gear on that.

    Keep in mind that creamy salad dressings typically have a lot of calories and that all store bought salad dressings have a lot of salt.

    I think a whisk would work for most dressings. My bacon version would require some vigorous chopping.

    A hand blender seems it would work best. But only if you truly need to emulsify, often times that's not even needed.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.
