This recipe was passed to me from another "Navy wife" back in the 80's. It's a little on the sweeter side but don't let that scare you! It's just delicious on a spinach salad with red onion slices, bacon and fresh mushrooms. Some of my friends dress the salad with the dressing while it's warm, My family likes it chilled! Gotta love a recipe with "options" (and) in 2004 I did Atkins, and made it with Splenda and Heinz reduced sugar ketchup and it was great!
