A mild oil and vinegar salad dressing

This is a mild and slightly sweet dressing. I got it from my mother, who has made it for years.


(1 cup)


  1. Mix dry ingredients with the vinegar and shake well
  2. Add the oil and shake again. Shake before using.


This gets its name from the red color the paprika gives the dressing. It works best with mild mustard, if you can find any.


Difficulty: trivial.
Time: 45 seconds preparation.
Precision: measure the ingredients.
