Reviews for Creamy Celery Seed Dressing
"Nice, tangy dressing. However, the recipe makes enough to serve the US Army, so I cut in 1/3 - since it's hard to divide 3 eggs into 4ths - and it still made enough for more than one meal. I don't know how long or whether it keeps well in the fridge. I have some leftover cabbage, so I'm looking forward to using this dressing in a coleslaw."
