2 C Mayonnaise
1/3 C half and half
2/3 C sugar
3-4 tablespoons strawberry vinegar (Can you buy this? I'll have to check it out.)
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
3-4 tablespoons strawberry jam
A few drops of red food coloring
Cream together, pour over lettuce and sliced strawberries
My mom sent me this recipe this morning. It looked so good, I was excited to post it. This is what she said about the recipe:
"I finally got a copy of an excellent salad dressing recipe. They used it at a Stake Relief Society social where I was working in the kitchen. This recipe makes a very large amount, so, just cut it down. They put the salad on individual plates with the dressing on it and sliced strawberries on top. I cut the strawberries with an egg slicer. The slices were the perfect thickness."
When I made this dressing, I couldn't find any strawberry vinegar, so I just used rice vinegar instead and it tasted great. Also, I don't add the half and half because I don't ever have it on hand. Because there isn't any half and half in the dressing, I add a little extra rice vinegar to thin the dressing down. I also don't add the red food coloring. I'm fine with the light pick color the strawberry jam gives it. I use homemade strawberry jam when I make this recipe. You can find out how to make strawberry jam by clicking here.
