According to family legend, this recipe came from the El Gaucho restaurant in Seattle, about 50 years ago. It has been a family favorite ever since! It's a wonderful salad dressing, and a top-notch dip as well. Store in glass jars in the refrigerator.

Cook's Note:

Any cheese will do: feta, stilton, anything crumbly. You can also add to it over time. It keeps well in the refrigerator and is best if it has a chance to marinate a day or so. When chopping the green onions, I use the 'middle,' discarding an inch off each end, and I really chop it fine. I think this is the 'secret ingredient.'

I submitted this recipe and just wanted to add a word of advice. I believe the green onions are the key ingredient. I discard the white part and about an inch of the green end then chop the rest very fine. It has to marinate for at least 2 days for the flavor to develop. Also most any type of crumbly cheese will work in this recipe. Read More

I knew going in on this dressing that it would probably have more mayonnaise than I prefer but was willing to give it a try. Still once I mixed it up I was surprised at just how much I underestimated that. This was so mayonnaise-y it dominated almost rendering any other ingredient null. For the most part it s all I could taste. Once doctored with the additions of a fair amount of both sour cream and buttermilk it was markedly improved. As this recipe s first reviewer I wish I could have given it a better launching with a more favorable review. Read More
