Mayonnaise is the most important emulsified dressing. It is sometimes used by itself as a salad dressing, but more often it serves as the base for a wide variety of other dressings. Mayonnaise-based dressings are generally thick and creamy. In fact, many of them are made with the addition of sour cream.
Emulsified French dressing is similar to basic French dressing, except that egg yolk has been added to keep the oil and vinegar from separating. Its preparation is similar to that of mayonnaise. Emulsified French dressing is given a red-orange color and a subtle flavoring through the addition of Spanish paprika.
