Before Kraft, Seven Seas, and Hidden Valley Dressings, this was a staple in most American homes. It was even served over gelatin salads and used over cold meat and cheese salads too. Try it over a big salad of leftover turkey, some cheese, lots of greens and a mix of veggies and some added nuts, grapes and pineapple for a truly outstanding "Chef Salad".
