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.
