Years ago, there was restaurant called the English Room on Newbury Street in Boston. They would serve a big bowl of salad at every table with this wonderful dressing. I found this recipe a long time ago in one of the Boston newspapers.

This restaurant was on Newbury Street and since I worked on Boylston I went there at least twice a week for lunch. They gave me the recipe back in the 70s and I've been using it ever since. In fact, there is a bowl of it in my fridge right now. Best ever. BTW, since I rarely have orange juice in the house I omit it and it really doesn't make much of a difference.

I halved the ingredients and really enjoyed this over greens. Thanks Alan! Made for cookbook tag.

Excellent tasting salad dressing (if you enjoy sweet dressings, I do). Follow the instructions for blending the ingredients. I didn't and it was impossible to do. Ground paprika just doesn't mix well with honey.
