This recipe originated with my Aunt Mazie, a wonderful cook from West Virginia. I like this dressing because of its versatility. It's wonderful with potatoes, macaroni, hot or cold sliced meat or vegetables. I've shared it with many friends and have had it published in several fund-raising cookbooks.

"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."
