  1. My neighbor had a dressing similar to this that I always loved as a child. She gave me the recipe but it was lost in one of my transitions. She made potato salad with it but the ham salad sounds amazing!

  2. This salad sounds so good, I will try to make it this week.
    I made chicken stock with the chicken carcasse left from last Sunday’s Roast following your recipe and a few days later used it to make soup, it was so much nicer than the usual soup I make and my husband and boys had seconds.
    It was sweet seeing your daughter in law moving away for the first time, It brought back good memories for me, we moved so many times with the navy.
    Thank you for the recipes.
