Besides Litehouse Buttermilk Ranch and Thousand Island Dressing (to make my In-N-Out Animal Fries), I never buy salad dressing. I grew up with my mom making the best italian dressing from scratch and I've been spoiled ever since! I've also become addicted to Simply Scratch's Sweet Basil Vinaigrette too. That dressing is on my top 5 favorite dressings of all time.
This Tropical Salad Dressing is on my list too. It has a completely different flavor from my other favorite dressings, but it's perfect for summer. So good, I could drink it!
Here is what you are going to need:
-1 cup Pineapple Juice
-1/2 cup finely minced Red Onions
-3 tbsp Brown Sugar
-2 tbsp Rum (or Water)
-1 tbsp Lime Juice
-1 tbsp finely chopped Walnuts
-1 tbsp Bacon Crumbles
In a small saucepan, combine the pineapple juice, red onions, brown sugar, rum and lime juice. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat. Simmer the salad dressing for 5 minutes until slightly reduced. Take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the walnuts and bacon.
Serve warm on your salad or chill in the refrigerator.
