Fresh lettuce is coming on in many a home garden, so I thought we might like to share some of the ways we use it up. Making your own dressing is easy and much cheaper than buying it bottled, of course.

Here's a quick, easily made dressing that goes best on fresh leaf lettuces (add other salad veggies as you like):

1 can undiluted tomato soup
1/3-1/2 c. sugar (I use fructose instead)
1/2 c. vinegar
1/2 t. salt (more if you like it saltier)
A shake of dried minced onion...about 2 tsp. when I do it
1 t. paprika
1 c. salad oil

Blend all together well, store in fridge. Shake it up before using, makes about 3 cups. You can add a split garlic clove to it when it's in the fridge and then take out the clove later if you like garlic too.

Do you have a dressing or other way of jazzing up summer garden veggies?
