Ruth’s Salad Dressing

My mom sent me this recipe a few years ago, and she said that she’s had this taped on the inside of a kitchen cupboard for years, so it must be good. And it is! It’s a little like Thousand-Island Dressing, but it’s got a little kick (from the onions). Toby really liked this (I think because it has a little kick!). This recipe makes a TON of dressing, so be prepared to have lots left over. Salads for everybody!
