Cook’s Note

This dressing can be varied in numerous ways. Fresh dill, tarragon, or rosemary can be added. This can be used as a base for Ranch, Caesar or Thousand Island dressings; it is also a marvelous marinade for vegetables, meats, or fish that are to be broiled or grilled. Suggested Drink: Red Tail Ale
