    Molly53's Note:

    Christie's restaurant was a beloved eatery in San Antonio for over 50 years before closing in the 90's. From the San Antonio Express News. Please read the recipe several times before attempting as the article said this was a demanding recipe and take care to add the oil one tablespoon at a time. Chilling time not included in preparation time.

      I went to Christie's when it was open. In fact it was the one restaurant my dad and mom took us to eat special dinners at when we went out to eat. This dressing is the most delicious dressing EVER. if you can make it.... you will be amazed. I wish someone would bottle it and sell it!
