    Vina's Note:

    This was my mom's favorite thing to make and eat for herself. I didn't appreciate it as a kid, but have to admit that I've learned to love it, too. Perfect with fresh from the garden baby spinach.

      My Grandmother used to make this dressing for wilted lettuce salad. There used to be a Restaurant in Memphis, the 91st Bomber Group, if I remember correctly, that served this salad. I have not been able to find the recipe in a cookbook, thanks for publishing it.
