  • Whip 1/2 pint of the whipping cream until soft peaks form, and then fold it into the cooked ingredients. If mixture is too thick, thin it by adding a little cream or fruit juice. Add to your favorite fruit salad and use enough dressing to make it the consistency you desire.

  • Store dressing, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for a week or so.

Wow! My tastes must sure be different, because I didn't care for this at all. All I could taste was vinegary mustard. I won't be making this again. Read More

I have been looking for this receipe for years. My dear neighbor used to make it but I didn't get her receipe before she passed away. I knew the ingrediates but not how to put it together. THANK YOU my husband and brother ask for it every Thanksgiving & Christmas. They always fuss because I didn't make it more often. Now that I have the directions again I WILL!!! THANKS AGAIN!!

I made it and the taste was different and good. The texture was not what I was looking for. If I make it again I will not refrigerate it first and immediately serve it in the salad. Read More

I was so intrigued by the different ingredients in this that I had to give it a try. It definitely would fall into a "non-traditional" category. Glad I tried it and I may make again but can't say that it's my favorite dressing for fruit salad (DH and I were in agreement on that). Read More
