The Secret of a deligfhtful salad is in the dressing....
I found this recipe in the Reminisce Magazine, yesterday while waiting to have my car breaks checked.
I remember the recipe from long ago, and my mother-in-law always added drained crushed pineapple to this recipe...This is a 1949 recipe from A&P Stores...in 1949 it was for them the 90th year of service. 1859-1949!!
In 1949 it would have cost you less than 20 cents a serving!
WOW! That would be 53 years ago...MERCY!
