    Julesong's Note:

    The Shield's Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg opened in the 1740s and was a familiar gathering spot for burgesses, travelers, and townspeople. This recipe for herb dressing from a flier my mother received at Williamsburg is a favorite in our house! Cook time includes chilling.

      Whisk in the curry powder, thyme, and oregano.
    4. 4
      Chill in refrigerator for at least one hour before serving, so that the herbs can release their flavor into the mixture.

      I love the Shield's Tavern herb dressing and have been making it for years from a recipe I procured while dining at the tavern. The listed amount of vinegar is incorrect. It should read a total of 1/3 third of a cup of vinegar, half red wine and half cider vinegar .
