I made for salad for our 4th of July party and we liked it very much. I took the onion and dill pickle and ran it through the food processor for a bit. Then added the mayo and seasonings. I also all some chopped eggs and bacon bits. We loved the dressing for this salad. I'm used to the sweet dressing and this was a nice change of pace. Thank you for sharing with us.

I just made this with the food processor and it was stupid easy to grate everything and make the dressing that way. Tastes awesome too!!

Lori this was so good! I added in some celery and used green onions in place of yellow, and reduced the dill by a couple of teaspoons it's even better today! thanks so much for this recipe!...Kitten:)
