Question by Jody: How can I thin a homemade salad dressing?
I made a homemade salad dressing (poppy seed) substituting greek yogurt for regular yogurt as a base. As a result it turned out too thick – not pourable. What can I use to thin the dressing without adding too many extra calories or fat?
Answer by Sandy K
add just a little milk to give you the Constancy that you need.

Question by I Like Stories: What is the salad dressing used on salads in the European Alps?
I was recently in the Bavarian Alps (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), all the restaurants we ate at had a similar salad dressing on their salads that was sort of like a ranch dressing, but not exactly. What is this dressing or how is it made?
Answer by Cister
And you did not ask….
Here are a few possibilities:
German salad dressing
This dressing is great when added to tomatoes, cucumbers, waxed beans, or Boston Bibb lettuce. The following recipe is made to serve 3-4 people.
3 small cans un-sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. granulated plain sugar
2 tsp fresh black pepper
salt to taste
the amount of vinegar can be adjusted, depending on how acidic one may like their dressings.
This is my favorite on the boston Bibb lettuce. On the other salads, the dressing should marinate the vegetables for a short while.

Attractive and serviceable stainless steel containers for lunchbox,
This review is from: LunchBots Rounds Stainless Steel Leak Proof Food Containers Black, Set of 2 (Kitchen)I'm a big fan of LunchBots. Since school started this year, we've had three of the original shape LunchBots boxes--two Pico (LunchBots Pico Stainless Steel Lunch Container) and one Duo (LunchBots Duo Stainless Steel Lunch Box/Food Container)--that rotate daily through my first grader's packed snacks and lunches. We've gotten some dents in the boxes, but nothing that impacts performance.
Six months into the academic year, I'm supplementing the lunch equipment I picked out in August. We use the aforementioned LunchBots boxes and a Laptop Lunch Bento Set 2.0, Blue and Lime for the bulk of the meals, plus insulated food jars (Thermos Nissan 16-Ounce Stainless-Steel Food Jar & New Thermos Nissan Jcg300p6 Stainless Steel Food Jar 10 Oz Double Wall Vacuum Leak-Proof Lid) for soup, rice, etc. All of these work very well, but I never put the Thermos lids in the dishwasher for fear of ruining them by trapping water inside. (It's a risk for the stainless jar, too, but I've not yet ruined a bottle that way--only the lids!) I'm not rabidly anti-plastic for re-useable items, but I do prefer to use stainless steel where it is practical.
What I was missing was a way to send cold cereal for snack. I put my son's milk in one of these dishwasher-safe travel bottles (Humangear GoToob 3 Ounce (3 pack) Travel Bottle) and send cereal in an old plastic Rubbermaid dish with a screw-on lid. In case he doesn't finish every bite, I want a container that will hold in leftover milk without a huge mess, but be thoroughly dishwasher safe, unlike our Thermos jars. I will use the 16 oz LunchBots jar for this purpose now. It easily passed my fill-with-water-and-shake test (no drips), and the wider opening will be much easier for my son to eat from. (I won't fill it to the top with cereal. That would be too much for my first grader.)
I like having jars in a variety of sizes so I can pack exactly the quantity of food I prefer, so having these come in a set works for me. I purchased the Kids Konserve small (5 oz Kids Konserve KK075 Small Leak Proof Stainless Steel Food Containers, Set of 2) containers on the same day I bought these. Both LunchBots jars are simply too large for foods like applesauce or an appropriate dessert portion for a kid. I also wanted to compare the two brands' lids as they've taken a different approach to water-tight seals. I'm very pleased with my Kids Konserve Stainless Steel Mini Food Containers, Set of 3 dishes for holding a hard-boiled egg or a serving of peas, but they are not water-tight, giving me no clue as to which seal design would work best for us.
For those who are interested, the four dishes I've just compared hold the following amounts of measured water, from smallest to largest:
1/4 cup to the ridge where the lid fits on the outside - Kids Konserve Stainless Steel Mini Food Containers, Set of 3
2/3 cup to the top, which squishes some water out! - Kids Konserve KK075 Small Leak Proof Stainless Steel Food Containers, Set of 2
1 cup to where the top narrows for the screw-on lid - LunchBots Rounds 8 ounce
2 cups to where the top narrows for the screw-on lid - LunchBots Rounds 16 ounce
As it turns out, my child can't easily open EITHER container--not the Kids Konserve pop-off plastic and not the LunchBots screw-off cap. Using my handy-dandy rubber band trick (put one rubber band each around the lid and the body of the dish), he did succeed in opening the LunchBots jar, so I guess these containers win as far as opening is concerned. On the other hand, for my own desire of a milk-free lunchbox at the end of the... Read more

Happy So Far,
This review is from: LunchBots Rounds Stainless Steel Leak Proof Food Containers Black, Set of 2 (Kitchen)The containers do appear to be leak-proof, at least for the short time I tested them. They seem sturdy enough to stand up to abuse.
It's hard to tell from the product image, but the lids are screwed on. I wish the threads were a little deeper or more widely spaced on the bigger jar, as it is tough to feel when they are lined up and it doesn't always want to screw on straight.

The Silicone seals can fall off...,
This review is from: LunchBots Rounds Stainless Steel Leak Proof Food Containers Black, Set of 2 (Kitchen)I own several lunchbot containers (the uno and the eco). I saw these are leak-proof so I bought 2 sets of these. While the smaller containers work great, I've had issues with the silicone seals in the larger containers. They keep popping off and falling *into* the food! They would fall off everytime I would turn the lid over and try to screw the top on. I've even tried placing them on top of the rim and slowing screwing the lid on but that doesn't work as well.
If you're having this issue, I would suggest you try for either a replacement or a refund. Otherwise if it's working great for you - that's great. But unfortunately it was not in my case. Otherwise, it's still highly recommended.
