Wish I could give this more than 5 stars!!! What a great salad!! The salad dressing is a wonderful combination of ingredients that goes perfectly with the salad. What a great find....can wait to make it again!!! Thanks so much for sharing, Stacey in Toledo.
Thanks for posting this, Stacey! It is a a Toledo tradition that I had often growing up. Betty was the founder of Soup and Such restuarant in Toledo and she started marketing the dressing in 1980. You can still buy it at many grocers in the area. I didnt know that this salad was a local thing until my husband landscaped her son's house and brought home some of the dressing with her bio on the label. Betty passed away but her salad lives on forever!
We loved this!! I wish I had just foregone the weights & used all the spinach & bean sprouts that I had... The dressing is fantastic. I grated the onion so it practically dissolved - you get great onion flavor without crunching on onion bits. Made for Best of 2012 game. :)
