At lunchtime in Sarasota, as a teenager, I had a more than healthy appetite. I often ate at the drugstore lunch counter, but sometimes I went up the street to a somewhat plain mom-and-pop restaurant, that served plain food at a cheap price. Both places served a "salad" which consisted of a large wedge of iceberg lettuce with a French dressing that was great! Have you recently looked at the ingredients on a bottle of salad dressing? I can't even pronounce the stuff, and it certainly doesn't make for a truly healthy salad. No wonder people eat less salads nowadays! Here's a recipe for French dressing that is cheap, healthy, and out of this world delicious. It will keep for some time in the refrigerator.
