wow, the dressing recipe for this is nothing like the original one I have from an early 1970s newspaper clipping,,,,think I'll stick to mine
Follow up, sorry. I just wanted to say, I appreciate turkey and ham. Not honey roasted, not honey ham, just turkey and ham. Also the lettuce being shredded. That is what made that unique. I so appreciate the original version of this!
I am also from Michigan. I have wonderful memories of going to Hudson's then Macy's for a maurice salad with the women in my family. This is close but the dressing should be more yellow not white like this turned out. Also it should be thicker, mine seemed runny. It was very close in flavor though. Any pointers out there to make it closer to authentic.
