crab bowl dressing

I found this recipe for an old restaurant in Portland that we use to go to. They would serve a small bowl of iceberg lettuce with the dressing drizzled on top and if you wanted a good amount of baby shrimp on the top. When I first made it up I only made 1/2 the recipe to try and it tasted exactly like I remembered. Even my son said it was perfect. I happened to check my Mother's old cook books and found the same recipe in the Joy Of Cooking.
