    Auntie Jan's Note:

    This is the sauce my mother uses for both her potato and pasta salads (the mayo based ones anyway). So good, rich and delicious. Enjoy!

      I like this, but was unsure of how much cooked pasta this was for, and of course I made too much pasta! So I doubled the recipe for 500g of pasta (about a pound), I added more pepper due to personal preference. I noticed this was quite tangy - a new taste for pasta salad here in Australia. I did add about 2 TB of milk to thin out the "sauce" a little as I felt it was thick, over all a great recipe that I will use again. Thanks for posting!

      This was good but a bit tart for us. I ended up using 4 teaspoons of sugar. Next time I would also cut back on the salt by half. I used some for macaroni salad and some for coleslaw. I liked it better with the macaroni salad. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

      Very good dressing. Not sweet which is a big plus, nice zing from the vinegar. Easy to make and very versatile. So pleased I have found this. Thanks for posting.
