Sweet Onion Sauce

This delicious sauce is perfect for replicating Subway's Sweet Onion Dressing. It is also great on Coleslaw or Spicy Thai Salad.

Yield: 3 1/2 cups (will dress several salads. Keeps well)
Prep: 10 minutes

1 cup olive oil
1 cup sugar
1 small onion
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 C white vinegar
1 small carrot, grated

Finely chop onion, add oil, salt, sugar, and mustard and beat or blend until well mixed. Add vinegar and beat. Fold in celery seeds and carrot.

Refrigerate leftovers and blend well before each use.

For sandwiches: After building your sandwich, dress with sweet onion sauce instead of mayonnaise. My favorite is a chicken breast sandwich with pepper jack cheese, tons of veggies, and sweet onion sauce.

For Coleslaw: Finely shred cabbage and dress with sweet onion sauce

For Spicy Thai Salad: Combine finely shredded cabbage, chopped peanuts, grated carrot, and dress with Sweet Onion Sauce. Season with Thai seasoning, a few drops of Tobasco sauce, and top with crushed ramen noodles.
