WARNING: This salad dressing might not fit your tastes. Proceed with caution! :) My brother and I had one choice of dressing for our salads growing up...Mom's. I've tried for years to get her to give up the recipe but all she would say is "Sissy, I don't measure. You have to make this one from your memories." This is my attempt to create the dressing I grew up with and loved! It's not for everyone but it sure is a hit in our family. (My brother pretty much refuses to eat any salad without it.) Thanks Mom!

Thanks! This tastes just like my mom used to make. Like you mom, she never measured, either - just added vinegar until the consistency looked right to her.

I made it only for me because DH doesn't like dressing with mayonnaise. I liked the taste. I had it with a mix of romaine lettuce. I liked the tangyness of the red wine vinegar mixed with the mayo. Thanks rickoholic :) Made for PAC Fall 2012

What a simple yet perfect creamy salad dressing!!! I made it scaled back for the 2 of us and did add some salt, pepper and garlic salt, just delish! I served mine over a tossed salad that was a side for our steak dinner. I am not sure that it made it the full 4 hours of chill time, but it didn't matter as it was so tasty with the amount of time I had it in the fridge. This will be another dressing I will use instead of my normal vinegar/oil homemade dressing. Thanks for sharing a keeper. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
