Uncooked Salad Dressing

We were making this at home long before bottled salad dressing became available.  I remember it being one of the first things we made in our Cooking project in 4-H!

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup tomato catsup
Juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1 small onion, grated
1 teaspoon paprika

Put ingredients in jar and shake until well blended.
