This is a great dressing to serve over a mixed green salad- perfect with Mexican food or BBQ! Originally from a September 1983 issue of Bon Apetit magazine in the R.S.V.P. Letters to the Editor section. The recipe was requested from The Warehouse restaurant in Marina del Rey, California.Sometimes I will add some chopped cilantro and finely diced jalapeno pepper to the dressing, especially if I'm serving this with Mexican food such as enchiladas.

Ingredients Nutrition

This was a good, creamy salad dressing with a mild flavor. It was a little thicker than I would have liked; next time I'd probably add some buttermilk to thin it a bit. Also, I prefer a more tart dressing, so I'll probably add a LOT more lemon juice (just a personal preference, though). Thanks for posting!
