3 tablespoons salad oil
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon crushed parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
few shakes of your favorite hot sauce (Tabasco, Louisiana, etc.)
The hot sauce doesn't make it spicy, just adds a bit of flavor.
To speed up the dissolving of the sugar and salt, I put the vinegar,
sugar, and salt in a jar and zap in the microwave for about 30
seconds, which helps the stuff to dissolve.
The finished product keeps for awhile in the frig.
