Salad dressing is very expensive to buy off the shelf. Here are a couple of reicpes that are so delicious and so easy. They can be non fat or fat, dpending on the mayonaise you use.

Onion: Chunk up a good size onion and then put in blender. Pour into a bowl and add one qt of mayonaise. Mix it up with a spoon (don’t use blender to mix) and pour back into mayonaise jar. Refrigerate and let set 3 days before using. You can do the same thing with garlic, but it doesn’t take much garlic. I also do the same by adding a couple of packages of crumbled blue cheese. I usually have all 3 kinds in my refrig since we use it on veggies all the time. My husband even uses it on his sandwiches rather than the plain mayonaise. It sure beats the store bought stuff and you can use the least expensive mayonaise and get excellent results. This isn’t exactly a y2k hint, but the money you save will buy a pound of beans.

I work at a company - believe me when I tell you you’ve heard of it - and we’ve had some major failures of “compliant” applications. We are so far behind on testing certain FUNDAMENTAL processes that I don’t see how we can possibly finish in time. Do you think I’m going to tell the world about it? Of course not! The last thing I need is right now is to lose my job. Besides which, my company has enough lawyers, guns and money to - well, I don’t even want to think. Our PR machine is massive and ever vigilant. And let’s not forget something else. Suppose I had the balls to come out publicly about my company with some information that would point towards a major banking meltdown. When it comes right down to it, do I want to be the person to cause the inevitable bankrun/stock market crash? Hell, I can’t even take it when my brother gets mad at me for suggesting he buy firewood.
