I am so happy to be the first to review this recipe- can't believe it's been up for almost 5 years without a review, and am embarrassed to say I have made it a few times and neglected to rate it. This is a truly Amish way of making dressing. I love the tanginess and the combination of ingredients. I'm making it today to have with spare ribs. Thanks grandma!
