Please help me find a lost recipe from a Restaurant that closed many years ago in
Ft Worth TX. It sat on a hill at the end of Ben Street. It was called Luminarias.
Recipe was for Honey Mustard Dressing. I recall it had a little grated onions.
It used to be on internet but the person took it down. Please help me if you can.
Thank you Ina Texas
Hello Jennifer or Ina,
The below recipe for "Luminarias House Dressing" might be the one you want. I found it in
a recipe collection with no information other than the name and the recipe. It does not
mention Fort Worth or Texas. "Luminarias" is a Mexican word for small fires or candles
that are lit in memory of the dead. We called them "luminaries" where I used to live.
There have been Mexican restaurants with the name "Luminarias" in California and New Mexico
and possibly in other places. I found Luminarias restaurant mentioned on a few Fort Worth
nostalgia message boards, but no recipes except for this one. This recipe does have honey
and mustard and chopped onion.
I will post this for reader input.
Luminarias House Dressing
1 c. mayonnaise
4 tbsp. prepared mustard
4 tbsp. vinegar
4 tbsp. honey
3 sprigs parsley, chopped
1/4 of a med. sized onion, diced fine
1 pinch salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. monosodium glutamate
1 c. all vegetable salad oil
Combine all ingredients except oil.
Add oil slowly, stirring constantly.
Makes dressing for 8 servings of salad.
Thank you so very much. This is what I have been looking for. Bless you. Ina
