I would have to say mine is a good poppy seed dressing, not that I don't like a lot of the others. My husband will only eat Thousand Island, he is missing out on a lot of other good flavors! So do you have a favorite?
Mine is the Ranch one you make yourself...Is it the Hidden Valley Ranch? I cant remember the name of it. But it is one cup of milk, one cup of mayo, and l packet of the store bought dry dressing. Mix all together, let sit for awhile and Oh so good. Creamy and smooth. I don't like the bottled Ranch Dressing as they are to strong. I like a more smooth mellow dressing.
My absolute favorite is not a mixed dressing, per se. Pour a little olive oil over my salad, sprinkle a little salt, then splash on a generous amount of red or white wine vinegar. My next favorite is Hidden Valley Ranch Buttermilk dressing, the one made with buttermilk, not regular milk.

My new favorite bottled salad dressing
What's your favorite salad dressing?
Blus cheese tops my list followed by Ranch, also like fresh lemon juice on salad.
Blu cheese/Roquefort is mine too. I haven't made the Hidden Valley Ranch in a long time. I also like to make the Good Seasons packet for the Italian dressing. Only I double everything but the packet of mix. Also, I use Red Wine vinegar in it.Leslie
Depends on what I'm eating. Gotta have Bleu Cheese with Hot Wings!! With spaghetti I want Ranch or Italian.
Catalina...then the Cucumber Ranch one. Don't care for plain Ranch.I like Zesty Italian too.
On salad? Bleu cheese AND French
With chicken wings? Bleu cheese
On pizza? Bleu cheese
bleu cheese here too, second would be thousand.
The kind you make yourself...with good quality olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh garlic, and whatever other things the creative muses lead you to stir in!
I'm with hounds.
I like the homemade ones best, too. I made a good poppyseed dressing the other day--very thick and creamy. Homemade blue cheese is the best!! I used to have a French dressing recipe that was really good--I think it had a can of tomato soup in it. It sure was good on tomatoes. Give me bottled ranch dressing for my wings though!!
I go through spurts
Hidden Valley Ranch (from the dry packet, with buttermilk)
Lite House Blue Cheese
Lite House Blue Cheese and Catalina
Zesty Italian w/parmesan cheese added (like this heated on spinach salads too)
Lite House Caesar Dressing for Caesar salads (add a squeeze of fresh lemon after tossing)
1. bleu cheese2. honey mustard.love 'em both.
Lite House (brand) chunky bleu cheese and once in a while I'll mix in a little Western dressing. bTW, Western dressing makes a terrific marinade for chicken or beef kabobs. I learned that trick from Mr Steak restaurants. Do those restaurants exist any where, anymore? Dottie
My favorite is homemade.. a vinegar and oil like donna's except it also has sugar (a lot). Nothing beats a homemade sweet vinegar and oil. There's a lot of non-chain Italian restaurants in our area and most serve their salads with a sweet italian style dressings -- I love all variations!
I sometimes add a spoon or so of mayo to my homemade dressing to thicken it and put on broccoli or pasta salads, etc.
My favorite bottled dressing is one called Hendrickson's --YUMMY!
Homemade Blue cheese or Roquefort. Next is Catalina or Ranch. DH always has olive oil and Balsamic vinegar, never anything else.Clare
Count me in with hounds too.
Paul Newman's Lite Lime Vinergrette... well, I can't spell it but it is a fantastic dressing. Vinagrette. Something like that!LOL
My former MIL's buttermilk roquefort dressing. Yumster
Homemade - Flax seed oil, apple cider vinegar, and a squeeze of spicy mustard. Or just freshly squeezed lemon.
I have several....all time favorite is one I make myself. EVOO and a splash of rice wine vinegar...delightful. parmesan peppercorn, absolutely yummy.
My own homemade honey mustard for DH. I like my own sun-dried tomato, basil vinagrette.I don't keep any store bought dressing in the house.
Homemade comeback salad dressing.
Good Seasons Italian.
If I buy salad dressing it would be Renee's Chunky Blue Cheese or the packets of dried Ranch that I mix with mayo.
99 percent of the time I make my own. I love extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice or I make a vinegrette with Dijon mustard, canola oil, red wine vinegar, garlic and a bit of honey.
I am with you Fizz, but I like the Renee's Caesar one. But I can't find it in the states when we go to Texas, so I try to take enough along for the winter.
Homemade Thousand Island, homemade french, or Hidden Valley Ranch, made with the packet, mayo and buttermilk.
