This Amish Salad Dressing is so easy to make. It is loaded with tons of zippy flavors with some sweet notes. It goes with almost any salad and will be ready in just five quick minutes!
I am a huge fan of making my own salad dressing (like this Copycat Outback Honey Mustard and this Mexican Ranch). This Amish salad dressing never disappoints either. Not only is it super tasty but it is so quick and easy to make too.
