This fabulous recipe comes from a girl I do catering with. It is her signature salad dressing and is requested all the time. Enjoy this with a summer salad of lettuce, cucumber, red onion, cherry tomatoes and some nice garlic croutons! Delicious

This is a wonderful salad dressing that I served on baby spinach, real bacon bits and shredded cheddar cheese. This sweet dressing went perfectly with it. A real winner, thanks so much Theresa P.

Truly outstanding dressing. Sweet, thick, creamy and I think it should be called Sunshine Dressing because of its yellow color. I have only a hand mixer and didn't want to stand there and use it for 10 minutes so I tried using the blender. It didn't dissolve the sugar so use the mixer as directed. The second time I made this dressing I used equal-measure Splenda and heated it and the vinegar to dissolve it. That sacrificed the beautiful yellow color and the thickness but the flavor was still superb. Third time I didn't heat the Splenda, just blended all the ingredients. That preserved some of the color. Can't say enough good things about this recipe. Gets my highest recommendation for a sweet salad dressing. Twenty stars!
