Garden lettuce calls for a light and tangy dressing. My grandmother had the perfect dressing and now you do, too.

I love how easy this is with super simple ingredients. Almost a buttermilk flavor and with all this lettuce one I'll do over again. Great timing. Thanks for sharing cooks4forty! Read More

Was not for us. Tasted like milk vinegar and sugar. Maybe try it with rice vinegar? Read More

Although I thought it was good hubby thought it was too tangy. I would probably add less vinegar the next time I made it. I made this again but added about 1/4 cup of mayo. And it was just right for us. Read More

I was very skeptical when I read the ingredients to this recipe, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good it is! I normally don’t keep evaporated milk on hand, but I looked up substitutes and used half-and-half which I always keep on hand for coffee creamer. It turned out excellent, my husband really enjoyed it as well! Read More
