The dressing recommended for the Potato and Zucchini Salad I was making called for a blend of Tofu Mayonnaise and this French dressing. I had no tofu for the mayonnaise so substituted a commercial preparation. I was glad to discover this very simple and quick recipe for French dressing. It is a cooked dressing and has much the same texture as a store-bought French dressing if not the bright orange colour.

I also substituted apple juice for the concentrate and omitted the water.

You may have guessed by now that I love hot oatmeal, as long as it is made with old-fashioned rolled oats. It’s a great way to start the day. You can have it plain or fancy according to taste, mood, and what’s on hand. This vegan version calls for dried apple slices and apple juice as part of the liquid.
