We had an Isaly's Restaurant years ago that served this dressing. It was so popular, they also sold it by the quart. I add additional onion to help balance the amount of sugar in this recipe. Also, I added a little yellow coloring to make it reminiscent of the restaurant dressing. It can be made with prepared mustard as well. For those on sugar/carb restriction, it can also be made with that famous blue sugar substitute as well, though you will find you need to increase the amount of the sweetener. Enjoy!

I loved this recipe! Even my kids eat it, and they HATE salad.

Texans: This is almost a match for Babe's Chicken House house dressing! It's very sweet, with a nice vinegar tang, and the author is correct, it's surprisingly universally liked. I do grate the onion instead of finely dice (which is a pain, but results in a nice smooth texture) but other than that, no changes. :-) __Update!__ Also, the flavors become SO much more complex if you let the dressing sit for several hours before serving. It's phenomenal with spinach, bacon and fresh sliced strawberries.
