I first made this to serve at our family reunion feast. I had prepared enough to fill a large roasting pan and nothing was left, not even a nut! Everyone loved it and requested the recipe before leaving, even my big brother! (as a side note, it's now the ONLY salad dressing he'll eat, on ANY salad!)
