"Very Old", recipe, Over 60 Plus yrs.is from my Grandmother. This was the "family favorite" anytime of the day, No special Occasion for Grandma to put this one together.I sure miss her touches to good old fashioned Home style Comfort cooking.

Note: This dressing is also "exceptionally" good in Macaroni Salad. This is our Families favorite.

This has been a long time favorite recipe of the family and handed down by my grandmother over 60 yrs ago.

Suggestion, & HINT:
When I make my salad, You never know how much to fix.
Good rule of thumb is: 1 potato per person. and 1 egg for every 2 potatoes. and you can't go wrong with amounts to make and serve.

She also made this same dressing and added to Macroni, for a super Macaroni Salad. Old recipe, from when things were made from scratch, mostly. Back then they used dill pickles instead of the dill pickle relish. You still can, instead of the relish.
