    Lori Mama's Note:

    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 Panzanella (Bread Salad), 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

      This is a FABULOUS dressing - and I know why! It is the Maggi seasoning, I have a German potato salad recipe that uses Maggi seasoning and the flavour is similar to this dressing. I added the optional parsley and we dressed a Batavia lettuce with this, and added some minced red onions and tomatoes. A lovely and very unique salad dressing, thanks Lori! FT:-)

      This was such a different tasting dressing. Obviously it was the liquid maggi that was making the difference. Wow!! I just mixed it with some spring greens to have with my wrap. I too only used 1 tsp of sugar. I don't think I have ever used the Maggi either in anything and I loved it. I will be making this dressing again soon. Thanks for sharing your recipe Lori Mama we loved it.
