‘Surprise’ Salad Dressing

This is my favorite salad dressing.  I got the recipe from my Mom, who got it from a friend…….. so we’ve been calling it “Michele’s Dressing” after her friend.  I’m calling it ‘Surprise’ Dressing because no one can ever figure out the ingredients and are surprised when I tell them. I like to serve it with mixed greens, red onion, dried cranberries, sliced apples, goat or blue cheese crumbles and Gourmet Pecans.  Add grilled chicken and you’ve got a meal!
