Subject: Salad Supreme Dressing Recipe
I am searching for a recipe my mother in law used for every family get together;
she said that it was from a magazine but couldnít remember which one. She has since
passed away and the recipe with her. It is for a salad dressing, I will list the
ingredients that I know are in it, but I donít know the measurements:
Water or vinegar, not sure which
It has to be refrigerated and shook well before each use; itís an oil based dressing,
not as tart as a vinegrette tho. I appreciate any help you can provide, I have searched
and googled with no luck so far.
I canít find a salad dressing recipe with exactly those ingredients. The closest that I can find
is the below recipe, which has sour cream, mayo, and garlic in addition to your ingredients,
and does not have the sugar. I looked for other blue cheese salad dressing recipes with Salad Supreme
as an ingredient, but did not find one that was closer to your description than this one.
1 c. sour cream
1 c. oil
1 c. mayonnaise
1/8 c. vinegar (white)
3 tbsp. Salad Supreme
1 pkg. blue cheese (crushed)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
Mix all together. Keep in refrigerator.
Thanks for looking; itís one of those Ďfamily secretí recipes that no one bothered to write down. L

Im looking for a made from scratch yellow cake from the early 60s.
Jean, my dear, you have to tell me more than that. There was more than one yellow cake recipe in the 1960s,
and when people put recipes on the Internet, they donít say ďThis recipe is from the 1960sĒ.
You have to give me some way to know the recipe when I see it.

homes and give out recipes. Or it could have been from home-ec in school.
