    Maggie in Florida's Note:

    I have two versions of what we call our House Dressing that I use for salads. I have been using the first version (the original) for over 40 years, and the second version for about 5. Everyone that has eaten my salads, loves either version, and more people than I can remember asked for the recipe. It is so simple and basic, yet it tastes great. Most of my guests always ask me to use my house dressing as opposed to bottled salad dressings. I never measure, so I will have to estimate, but I would suggest you go with the smaller amounts first, then taste and adjust, if necessary. Of course, the amount will have to be adjusted according to the size of the salad.

      So simple - so fabulous! Why didn't I think of that? So glad that you posted this recipe that I will use many more times. I can't wait to experiment with other seasonings instead of the garlic salt also. Thank you so much!!

      Maggie, you are a genius! I love this and have had it for 4 days in a row. I've been eating salad 2x a day so I have this for one salad and then my other favorite Cuban Garlic Salad Dressing. Thanks so much for posting. I'm so happy I found this. Adding fresh ground pepper really makes this pop.
