Still Hoarding?!

As some items continue to be in short supply, both in stores and online, i’ve found myself enjoying the relatively easy challenge of replacing some of our favorites with home made, and therefore, healthier substitutes.

Compare the ingredients on this delicious commercial (and convenient) product to those of my new homemade version.

My husband is a huge fan of Wish Bone Western Dressing. Apparently, a lot of people are. Incredibly, a quick google and i found the perfect recipe for us in the very first go! Never a reason to purchase the commercial product again.

Here’s my slightly modified recipe:

Homemade Western Dressing


  • 1/3 cup organic sugar
  • 1/3 cup organic olive oil, extra virgin
  • 2/3 cup organic ketchup
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ tsp Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt


Whisk together all ingredients until smooth.

Makes 12 ounces


I mix in a 2 cup glass measuring container.  Gives me plenty of room to whisk, then I’m ready to pour it into a narrow necked dressing bottle. 


Below is the published recipe. I made one change and that was to use Bragg’s Liquid Aminos instead of Worstershire Sauce. I may try to reduce the sugar, but may not – Allen thought it was perfect – i thought it a bit too sweet.

A friend gave me this recipe. It is so much better than bottled dressing and there is no high fructose corn syrup if you use the organic ketchup (:Leah 15 mins  1 cooksnap
