Our daughter was born 2 years, 5 months, 9 days, 5 hours and 13 minutes ago, but hey, who’s counting? A few days after her glorious arrival our wonderful realtor brought dinner to us! When you look in the dictionary to find out the definition of a true Southern Lady her picture is there! She was truly a blessing to us fresh out of college kids who moved 950 miles away from home.
She brought over a full course meal and dessert which was out of this world! Instantly Lover Boy and I fell in love with the red concoction in the glass Mason jar…it was homemade salad dressing! (In all honesty I had never had homemade salad dressing other than red wine vinegar and oil). We literally ate salad for a week and licked that jar dry. It was the best salad dressing I had ever tasted! She had made the dressing to go on top of her Strawberry Walnut Salad which included a fresh lettuce mix, strawberries, roasted walnuts and Monterey Jack cheese. I literally thought I had died and gone to heaven with this salad!
I ended up not getting the recipe from her until 2 years later when she sold our house the day before our son was born (I’m pretty sure that’s why I went into labor 15 days early, crazy times!) Although it took me forever to get my hands on this gem, it is now a staple in my refrigerator and a recipe that everyone always asks for when they come over to visit!
What you need:
Mix everything together in your jar and shake and place in refrigerator. Every time you open the door to gaze (like me) give it a little shake again! *I have found it tastes better on the 2nd day! So make in advance if able to!
This dressing tastes amazing on any kind of salad! Give it a try sometime and tell me what you think!
Thanks LeeAnn (our old realtor) for this amazing recipe!
