This is a great dressing, in the south, they add chopped tomatoes and put it over biscuits, or without tomatoes, put it over a baked potato

This was my first time trying this, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was really good! We served it over spinach, feta, strawberries, and almonds. Thanks!

I grew up on this stuff, too. I love this dressing. It is tangy and sweet and goes so well over ice cold lettuce or greens. Sometimes we'll put slice hard-cooked eggs in the greens as well, but the highlight of the salad is this dressing. My advice: make a double batch! :) Thanx for posting!
