A famous department store's salad. I believe it was Macy's but not positive. My mother used to go there as a child and loved this salad. It's really good! Note: if you've never heard of onion juice as I hadn't, you can find it in the spice isle of the grocery.

Absolutely terriffic and almost the way I remember it. I added a bit of yellow mustard to color up the dressing. Didn't have onion juice so, i substituted onion powder with some water. I also used a second diced boiled egg and sprinkled it over the servings. Thank goodness someone figured this out! I remember having it at Hudson's as a kid!! Thanks Robin!
Excellent! I remember having this salad as a kid...45 years ago...at J.L. Hudsons department store in downtown Detroit. The chain was taken over by Marshal Fields and then again by Macy's. You can still buy it at the store in Novi,Mi. Thank you so much...I made your recipe and it brought back many fond memories.
