Homemade Dorothy Lynch Dressing



3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup white vinegar

1 can condensed tomato soup (yes, condensed, not my choice, but staying true to Ms. Dorothy’s original recipe)

1 tsp celery seed

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp dry mustard

3/4 tsp kosher salt

1/2 pepper

1 cup grapeseed oil




In blender, add first 7 ingredients and blend until smooth. With blender on low, slowly add the oil until incorporated. Adjust seasoning to taste. Refrigerate for at least an hour.




This is based on the original recipe from Ms Dorothy Lynch, who used that amount of sugar and condensed tomato soup, most notably Campbells. I HAVE NOT played with this recipe to bring it to a more natural, less sugar recipe, but it sure does trigger memories from my childhood Summer’s in Nebraska and really makes me crave a taco salad that only my wonderful step mother can make!

It is a mid west classic and I shall play with it and keep you updated! But at least you know you can recreate it easily from scratch for family or friends.
