Aunt Isse's Salad Dressing

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by SilentCricket

At family gatherings, it wasn't complete without my aunt's macaroni salad made with this delicious dressing. It provides a yummy alternative to the mayo or vinegar based dressings. I've also used this on potato salad and was asked to make the potato salad version for a friend's wedding reception! (Cook time is an estimate)

This was a nice surprise. It is very tangy when first made, but does mellow upon standing. I reduced the recipe by half and used it on a macaroni salad. I used half a box of macaroni and had more than enough dressing to coat things nicely. I used dry powdered mustard and the dressing was a pretty pale yellow. I will use this recipe again.
