Contrary to popular belief French dressing looks nothing like this

It is neither red, nor does it come in a bottle. Why this is called french, I am not sure. It could come from some small corner of France where some Kraft employee went 30 years ago. Or it might come from that same Kraft employee sitting around a board room table with the marketing team.
Either way, "La sauce pour la salade" is made just before serving the salad. It is always tossed (like Caesar salad) and has only 3 ingredients:

A small spoonful of mustard, 2 tablespoons of balsalmic vinegar and then 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix Mix Mix

I LIKE VARIETY. Like an aisle full of variety.
You know the kind, like any random grocery store.
                                        Rows of salad dressing at aWal-Mart store in Corpus Christi, Texas. Large retailers noware trimming the variety of many of the products they stock.

So I get creative: dried herbs, lemon juice, pepper, cheese, chocolate chips, rainbow sprinkles.
