Grandpa Dressing (Salad)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lori Mama

This is a childhood memory from when I grew up in Germany. Over the years my Dad has added a touch to it here and there. My kids just love this dressing. It originally was tossed with Boston Bib lettuce, but you can use it on most greens.

I have a rather fondness for salad dressings, and not the bottled kind either. So with this said, "Grandpa" must be the "salad-dressing-angel" because this is a wonderful dressing for greens that makes the taste burst into very tasty bites of deliciousness. I followed this exactly, and tossed on Recipe #58958, which just made me eat two helpings so I could slurp up the dressing until there was none left! Yummy! Made for Everyday is a Holiday May 2009
